Mooring place for river cruise ships
The gateway to the Bavarian Forest is located on the banks of the Danube.
The Danube - Deggendorf's lifeline in the past and the present - has always played a decisive role in the development of this enchanting Lower Bavarian town.
Lively town of old traditions
The charming town of Deggendorf lies 300 m above sea level, and stretches,114 m along the banks of the Danube, one of Europe’s major international waterways. Deggendorf is a district town with a population of 34,000. Apart from beautiful surroundings, Deggendorf also boasts a number of historical buildings and sights - the Old Town Hall, the town walls, the Church of St Peter and St Paul, the Church of the Assumption, a cultural quarter and the historical town centre – all of which will delight your passengers.
The unusual pear-shaped site of the historical town centre - still clearly discernible today - dates from the early Middle Ages.
An attractive pedestrian precinct, extending from Oberer Stadtplatz through the old town quarter to the newly-laid out square Luitpoldplatz, makes a stroll through Deggendorf a truly enjoyable experience.
