From the three-river city of Passau via the princely city of Landshut to the UNESCO World Heritage of the city of Regensburg. Always with the best bathing options on the Danube, Vils and Isar. On secluded cycle paths to famous monasteries with baroque masterpieces, rustic monastery taverns and beer gardens. And from the Danube Valley via the Hallertau to the mighty rocks of the Bavarian Jura. It's not just the calves that rejoice on this rustic white-blue, bearish baroque, tasty and instructive cycle route through the Bavarian Thermenland.

In seven stages we introduce you to the route of the beautiful Lower Bavaria tour, which takes you on around 244 kilometres across the Bavarian Thermenland, combining picturesque floodplains with bubbling thermal water, beer and culinary delights with lush Baroque. It's worth packing your swimming trunks: In summer you can take a refreshing dip in one of the rivers along the way, while the thermal baths along the route provide year-round relaxation. The stages are relatively short and can be easily mastered by occasional cyclists, leaving plenty of time to discover the sights of the region in peace and quiet. Enjoy the silence in one of the monasteries, relax your calves in the Lower Bavarian thermal water or add variety to the tour with a round of wakeboarding or a trip to the climbing forest. Again and again you will pass through lively and historic cities with famous names. And the Bavarian thermal region is urban anyway. You can try it out and enjoy it at your leisure when visiting a Bavarian beer garden in the evening at the latest. This route is suitable for young and old and even for families with small children.

On the way you are flexible and always able to shorten the tour if the weather suddenly changes. The train takes you back to the starting point on many sections of the route. On the Danube and Inn, by the way, this can also be a ship.

    After an exciting stay in Vilstal, the second stage of the Lower Bavaria Tour will hopefully start without any hangovers.

    Surrounded by medieval gables, you will leave Landshut's Old Town on the fifth leg of the Lower Bavaria tour and turn northwest. At Rottenburg an der Laaber you drive through the heart of the Hallertau, Europe's largest hop growing area. On the approximately 50-kilometer stage, it's all idyllic: Quiet

    Around 35 kilometers are waiting for you on the sixth stage of the Lower Bavaria tour. They are lined with idyllic natural sections as well as many historical, cultural and culinary highlights.

    The seventh and thus last stage of the Tour of Lower Bavaria pulls all the stops in terms of enjoyment, even if it begins with the most demanding increase of the whole tour: On the ride through the Eininger woods you have to pedal once strong before you with a fast descent be rewarded down to Kelheim
