Welcome to the heart of bavaria

Located between Munich, Ingolstadt, Nuremberg, Regensburg and Landshut lies the holiday region of ´Bavaria's heart´ – the Danube Gorge and surrounding area´. A fascinating region with a wealth of natural attractions and cultural diversity.

Thanks to this diversity, putting together programmes for groups as well as individual tourists at short notice is particularly easy: Weltenburg Abbey in the Danube Gorge with a boat ride, the Altmühltal with its castles towering high above the valley, brewing and art at Kuchlbauer's World of Beer combined with a journey through the world’s largest contiguous hop growing area, the Hallertau, a visit to the thermal baths of the region or the extensive network of cycle and hiking trails, many with quality ratings – just a few components for putting together individual holiday packages.

We will be happy to help you put together the details of your offers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
