Bike Touring Highlight
The Kachlet, a section of the Danube in front of Passau littered with rocks and small islands, has always hindered shipping traffic. So it was decided to flood the almost 20 km long dangerous route.  To this end, Rhein-Main-Donau AG, founded in 1921, built a power plant with a double lock between 1922 and 1927. This was also the first step towards the creation of the Main-Danube Canal large-scale shipping route.
As an industrial monument, the large power plant is very impressive and worth a visit!
