The Abbey of Weltenburg on the Danube

When we saw a film about Regensburg on TV, we decided to go there for 2 days. As the weather was so fine, we wanted to visit the benedictine abbey of Weltenburg as well. It is about 25 miles away from Regensburg on the Danube. On our trip to Regensburg we went first to Kelheim where we took the boat.

The church

If you are interested in baroque, the visit of the church is a must!!! The architects are the famous Asam brothers.


When you enter through the big door, you will be in the beer garden. Attention, it could be rather crowded. But I'm sure you will find a seat there. Just walk around and ask for a free seat. If you are 2, it will be much easier to get a seat than for a group.

    great infos and lovely pics ! Looks like a great place to go, not necessarily for Napoleon's luggage, but for the great landscape & monastery !

    It is interesting that the bike taxis have become popular. I first saw one in Dortmund, but now they’re everywhere.

    You're making my wife (an ME) very hungry and I guess you bought me one of those little kegs for Christmas too. ;)
