Now here you will find some real history! King Ludwig I of Bavaria had this impressive round building built high above the Danube on the Michelberg near Kelheim as a memorial for the unification of Germany after the wars of liberation. Today the 34 white marble goddesses of victory inside are just as impressive as they have ever been. The gallery at the top provides a fabulous view of the Danube and the River Altmühl.
TIP: You can visit the Weltenburg Strait with its craggy rocks, the Altmühl Valley, the Danube and the Main-Danube canal on foot, by bike or on board a ship. One of the most popular destinations is Weltenburg Monastery on the banks of the Danube, which looks back on almost 1000 years of brewery tradition.
