The first major settlements that the river encounters are Ulm, home to the tallest church tower in the world, and Donauwörth with what is considered one of the most beautiful streets in southern Germany.  It also passes through the spectacular scenery of the Danube Gorge. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Regensburg is the river's next port of call. Almost a thousand monuments in the town's old quarter serve as a reminder of its Roman heritage, merchants and saints. The German section of EuroVelo 6 ends in Passau.

Regional information
  • Weil am Rhein - Radolfzell

    Rhine Valley Cycle Route

    The varied tour through the Rhine Valley passes through countless vineyards and mostly directs cyclists along routes away from busy roads, with detours around larger towns. The motto of this cycle route is “Enjoy nature”. The flora and fauna of the Kaiserstuhl hills along with the countless vineyards will allow cyclists to forget their everyday stresses. The Rhine Valley Cycle Route follows the course of the Rhine through mountain scenery and a valley lined with high mountains, passing along the borders with Liechtenstein and Austria before arriving at Lake Constance.

  • Bodman-Ludwigshafen - Tuttlingen

    Hohenzollern Cycle Route

    From the Danube to Lake Constance. Tuttlingen’s local mountain, the Witthoh, is the only hill on this section of the route. In fine weather, the views from the top are simply outstanding: it is possible to see as far as Lake Constance, the Feldberg, over the volcanic landscape of Hegau and even as far as the Alps. The route is then almost entirely downhill, whereby the considerably milder climate that prevails around Lake Constance can be felt the further one travels. The tour then continues along the Stockacher Aach tributary of the Rhine to Ludwigshafen beside Lake Constance where the Hohenzollern Cycle Route ends.

  • Tuttlingen - Jochenstein border crossing

    Danube Cycle Route

    From Tuttlingen, the Danube Cycle Route continues on to Ulm where the tallest church spire in the world (forming part of Ulm’s minster) can be visited. Countless historical monuments lie along the route that then passes through Ingolstadt, Regensburg and Passau before arriving at the border with Austria. Regensburg’s old town is considered an outstanding example of a well-preserved medieval city centre. Thousands of monuments can be visited here, harking back to the days of the Romans, tradesmen and saints. In 2006, UNESCO added the Regensburg ensemble of the old town with the Stadtamhof district to its list of World Heritage Sites.
