What to see in Kelheim

Nestled near Kelheim Port, the Danube Gorge, locally known as Weltenburger Enge, is a natural wonder that should top your list of things to do. This stunning stretch of the Danube River is flanked by towering limestone cliffs that rise dramatically from the water's edge. The sheer grandeur of the landscape is enough to take your breath away. A popular way to experience the Danube Gorge is by taking a boat tour. These tours offer an up-close encounter with the majestic cliffs and provide unrivalled views of the serene river winding through this geological marvel. As you glide along the water, you'll be mesmerised by the play of sunlight on the rocks, the lush greenery along the shore and the tranquil ambience that envelops you.

For those who relish outdoor adventures, the Altmühl Valley Nature Park is a paradise waiting to be explored. This pristine natural setting is just a stone's throw from Kelheim Port, offering a range of activities to satisfy your sense of adventure. Hiking enthusiasts will be delighted by the Altmühltal Panorama Trail, a network of well-maintained paths that stretch for over 200 kilometres.

Kelheim and its surroundings are steeped in history, making them a captivating destination for history enthusiasts and culture aficionados. The Befreiungshalle (Hall of Liberation) is a historical gem perched atop Michelsberg Hill, offering panoramic views of the Danube Valley. Commissioned by King Ludwig I of Bavaria, this neoclassical masterpiece was built to commemorate the victory over Napoleon's forces in 1813. The Hall of Liberation not only impresses with its architecture but also houses a museum that delves into the history of the Bavarian Kingdom and the struggles for liberation. The sweeping vista from its terrace provides a breathtaking perspective of the surrounding landscape. Another must-visit historical site near Kelheim Port is Prunn Castle. This well-preserved medieval fortress takes you on a journey back to the days of knights and chivalry.
