Great side trip from Regensburg on a ferry down the Danube Narrows. Beautiful church with figures of St George and many other statues. This is a very different style than other abbeys. There is a brewery there on site as well. Great side trip from...More

I especially enjoyed the interior decoration of this church and the striking statue of St. George. It really is unique and made this a special visit.

It is really impressive church and is worth to see, if you are in that region or if you are especially interested in churches. As a person, who is not used to visiting churches, I shall admitt that I was really impressed by this one.

A Bavarian church situated on the Danube in the Baroque style. Scenery around the Church is wonderful.

Nestled in the Black Forest, this Abbey is extraordinary. With its wonderful architectural history, preserved artifacts, and mysterious light for the ceiling, we were treated to a special holy experience. Guides are outstanding and worth the 20 minute docent.

Beautiful location and a neat place to visit if you have extra time. If there is something else you want to see, I would skip this.

Inside this German Baroque delight are a couple of unexpected and unusual sights. The first is St. George astride his horse on top of the altar, fighting a dragon (of course) and defending a fair maiden from said dragon. St. George has the red Benedictine...More

This is the church of Weltenburg Abbey. Externally it is rather plain and fits in with the other buildings of this lovely abbey by the Danube. The interior is another matter. It is stunningly beautiful. Built in the early 18th Century, it is this building...More
