We took a tour of this abbey. The church is beautiful and as is the case with most European churches, has a great history. The worlds oldest brewery is located here. The beer is dark and tasty.

We visited the Abbey as part of a Danube River Cruise, it is very much on their schedule. Its OK but in truth there is not a lot to see there and you will quickly find yourself gravitating to the beer garden. Maybe its just...More

The abbey is the place to visit, there is not much to see of the monastery, you get a small glimpse of the gardens.

You can either go there on a return boat trip which is really worth it or by car. The biergarden there has very nice food and beer which is still brewed from the recipe back in 1050. There is a very beautiful small church there...More

We have made a stop at the famous Weltenburg Monastery. The atmosphere of the location directly on the Danube river and the typical Baverian beer garden is worth the visit. We had tried all the beers being offered that day on tap and enjoyed all...More

The boats are not small, most of their boats take 500-600 people. They appear to have a 150 person boat too, but I've never seen that. Also travelling on the river it is normally a relatively smooth ride.
