small city tour starting from the station - The station is an ideal starting point especially for tourists with narrower wallet, because here the trains arrive from the suburbs. For example, I slept at the SHG Hotel Bologna (4-star) in Zola Predosa for under € 60. It is located directly at the breakpoint of local traffic to Bolognato recommend:

Vohburg is a small town near Ingolstadt. The old town is picturesque, car traffic through the narrow streets and reduced by missing thoroughfares to a removable level. Vohburg is counted among the four-river places, as it is characterized by the rivers Ilm in the south, the small Danube, the couple and also the Danube in the north. Along the Danube also runs the Danube cycle path, at which this tour begins. The settlement itself goes back to the Bronze Age (settlement finds on the castle hill). Although it looks so from the Danube side, there is no castle anymore. After the castle was sanded and rebuilt three times in the history of the city, today a cemetery with church and chapel has been erected on the castle hill.

b) Summer: for swimming,
c) Autumn / Winter: To experience a harsh mood in autumn and winter only on the first and last piece, since in between also paved paths and residential areas are passed throughDirections:
For the approach from the center we used the S-Bahn to Wannsee and then the ferry 10. Incidentally, this does not cost extra, but is part of the BVG network. However, anyone who tries to drive with a short-haul will have to get off the Havel and swim the last bit. From Kladow you can follow the Havel cycle path until the start of the described stage, choose the X34 direction "Zoologischer Garten" or the 134-direction "Wasserwerk Spandau". - Unfortunately, the ferry only runs every hour on the hour. Who misses them, as we still have a small round at the S-Bahn "Wannsee" turn.Highlights:
Active by tree casting - Right at the beginning of the short tour you have the opportunity to water young trees with a bucket. The water can be fetched from the Havel, 20 m, but it is more than just a tree.Curry sausage at its finest - At the end of the tour you will find the Waldschänke of "ketch-up 35" as a starter. Beautifully located, it spoils you with Currywurst, Original Thuringian Bratwurst, Homemade Berlin Bouletten and Old Berlin Schaschlik; with braised onions, home-made pasta and potato salad and chips red / white, with garlic or hot cheese sauce.
