Regensburg
Spend the morning discovering Regensburg’s long line of dukes, kings and bishops that called the former Bavarian capital and Free Imperial City home. Regensburg boasts the largest medieval old town north of the Alps (over 1,500 listed buildings), a prominent skyline, and a large collection of museums, exhibits and theaters. Find your need for speed with a tour of the state-of-the-art BMW factory. Tour the carmaker’s futuristic plant and learn how it’s cranked out millions of automobiles.

Nestled between Regensburg and Passau sits a town surrounded by the foothills of the Bavarian Forest, Deggendorf. Journey deep into the alluring Bavarian Forest National Park, Germany’s first national park, and discover outdoor leisure at its best.

In Straubing, uncover the Bavarian town’s deep-rooted love for all things food and drink.

DAY 5

Vilshofen, Passau, Engelhartszell
A new day brings new experiences in the “City of Three Rivers,” Passau, where the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers join together. Take to the city by foot and explore its splendid mix of old and new. Medieval lanes, tunnels, cathedrals and archways fuse with modern shopping malls and buildings. Marvel at the Italian Baroque-style St. Stephen’s Church, which holds the second largest church pipe organ in the world.

DAY 6

Weissenkirchen
Start your day in the heart of the Danube Valley, strolling through Weissenkirchen’s idyllic wine village while sampling mouthwatering Austrian pastries.

Named for its white church that dominates the landscape, the city is flanked by vineyard-lined hills, historic houses and beautiful courtyards. Melk Abbey is a Baroque monastery and sits atop a rocky formation overlooking the Danube. Aside from its stunning architecture and panoramic views of Wachau Valley below, its interior boasts pure opulence in every room. There’s nothing like it.
