Bike Touring Highlight
The Vils comes from the confluence of the Great and the Little Vils. The two source rivers spring up in Upper Bavaria in the district of Erding and unite 700 meters south of Gerzen, in the area of the community Schalkham, near the district Wörthmühle, where the same, last mill is located on the Great Vils.
The Vils is 68.62 km long. The valley of the Vils is agricultural and there are several hydroelectric power plants on the river. In Frontenhausen she flows in a nature reserve through the Vilstalsee, which also serves for recreation. A few kilometers later, it divides into the new Vilskanal and the Altvils, which reunite and divide several times in the course. Their largest inflow is the opening at Kröhstorf Kollbach. At Vilshofen the river flows at river kilometer 2248.7 finally into the Danube.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vils_(Donau)
