Mooring place for river cruise ships

The mooring place

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.
