  • Passau
    The '3 rivers town', located where the Inn and Ilz rivers flow into the Danube. The old town is located on the point where the Inn joins the Danube. Lovely old buildings, narrow streets, river boats making trips around the town as well as down the Danube to Vienna, Budapest and further east, a castle on a cliff overlooking the rivers and the town, cathedral with the largest cathedral organ in the world, Bohemian Glass Museum.We have a suggested walk around the city centre which takes in most of the major historic landmarks. Carfree: take the train, changing at Plattling.
  • Regensburg
    UNESCO world heritage site, based on Celtic and Roman settlements with the famous stone bridge. Previously seat of the Permanent Diet of the Holy Roman Empire. The city centre contains more than 1,000 historic buildings, most of them built pre-1500. Also good shopping. We have a suggested walk around the city centre which takes in most of the major historic landmarks. Carfree: take the train, changing at Plattling.
  • The Danube
    In this area, a fertile plain with steep sided valleys at each end, beyond Passau and beyond Regensburg. Start at the Jochenstein dam and Haus am Strom on the Austrian border, then the monasteries at Niederalteich, Oberalteich and Metten, castles at Egg, Falkenstein etc., the lovely towns of Deggendorf and Straubing. Valhalla. The smallest wine growing region in Germany. The nature reserve where the Isar flows into the Danube. The Danube Gorge and Klosterweltenburg. Meander along the narrow roads by the river and watch the barges or visit Roman remains and museum displays along the northern border of the Roman Empire. Carfree: many places can be reached by taking the train to Plattling and travelling towards either Passau or Regensburg - both places offer a variety of boat trips on the river.
  • Munich - capital of Bavaria, home of the Oktoberfest, wonderful palaces and art collections, music and museums. Carfree: take the train, changing at Plattling.
  • Salzburg
    Nearly 3 hours by car but well worth it! We have a suggested walk around the town to take in most of the major landmarks. Carfree: there are some bus trips. Berchtesgaden is also close by.

Carfree means you can reach these destinations using the BayernTicket, €22-38 per day for up to 5 adults/children free, valid after 09.00 weekdays, all day weekends. Or take one of the bus trips from the village.
