Danube is Europe’s second longest river and flows from the Black Forest to the Black Sea connecting several countries that have shaped the character of the river landscape.

The varied landscapes of the Danube region offer the ideal surroundings for a variety of activities. For cyclists, there is the 609 km long Danube cycle route which is a great way to explore the Danube as it winds its way through Germany. As the route runs right beside the river from Donaueschingen to Ulm you can explore the many facets of the Danube river. And on the way to Passau you’ll pass through many picturesque towns such as the UNESCO World Heritage city of Regensburg.

Those who like to take in the beauty slowly can explore the Danube region on foot. The Danube Peaks Trail takes you on a 57 km journey from the highest elevation in the Swabian Alb in Lemberg down into the Upper Danube Gorge, offering spectacular vistas as it makes its way down into the valley.

Coming to the culture, a multitude of events and festivals show off the cultural highlights of the region, especially at this time of the year.

The International Danube Festival running from 1 to 10 July in Ulm and Neu-Ulm, brings together the various musical styles of the Danube countries and allows you to enjoy the different international influences against the remarkable backdrop of the Danube river.


Donauw√∂rth also offers cultural attractions in the relaxed surroundings of the natural landscape. During the summer season the open-air stage at Mangoldfelsen hosts a wide variety of productions: from German history to fairytales; there’s something for all the family.
