The charming 1200-year-old town of Vilshofen is located in the southern part of the Bavarian Forest and on the banks of the Danube. At this age, the town has seen its fair share of flood, plague, and war. But despite the cracks caused by these unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances, the town is even more attractive now - having survived it all. Don't miss a visit to the abbey of Benedictine monks. It is called "Schweiklberg". Try the "Schweiklberger Geist" a special herbal medicine. Of great interest is the Afrikamuseum that is also housed in the Abbey. Other places of interest include the Town Hall that overlooks the Town Square and the City Tower.
Despite the fact that throughout the 17th century the Thirty Years’ War raged on and the Black Death was a constant visitor, the city somehow managed to build the Pilgrimage Church Maria complete with Italian stuccos in 1691. Also built in the 1600s was its monastery and hospital. Of great interest to many is the 400-year-old brewery that is still working. Don’t forget to do some shopping, dine at the delightful restaurants, and be sure to taste the renowned German beer. Families with children will thoroughly enjoy a visit to the interesting horse ranch.
Be sure to meet the Vishofen Beer Queen and enjoy the atmosphere and the ‘Oompa’ music. Over two hundred years ago the medieval town centre was almost completely destroyed by a huge fire. Only the "Stadtturm" survived. Today visitors can experience the cobbled streets of the new downtown and see some fine modern art. In memory of the terrible fire, a fireworks display over the Danube is held on the second weekend in July. It is one of the grandest in the region.
Currently we have no major cruise ships visiting Vilshofen in the 2016-2018 seasons.
