Niederbayern Tour Stage 1: Passau to Vilshofen
26 kilometers – Relaxation and experience are at the forefront of the Lower Bavaria tour. Therefore, the individual stages include a few miles, because of course, the Cycling holiday also get time and opportunity, the individual stations and, above all, the landscape to enjoy. From the fashionable Passau to the sweet Vilshofen it is therefore only just over 25 kilometers.

From Passau go over the Danube Bike Path to Vilshofen. If you are curious Gate of beer crates happened, then you arrived in the city. Vilshofen you can walk well.

Niederbayern Tour Stage 2: Vilshofen to Eichendorf
29 kilometers – Of the beer bike path offers all sorts of beer – based opportunities for breaks: from the Bierbank to beer swing. The landscape goes through a forest that can look back on an interesting history, because until about 100 years ago, granite was mined here. The forest did not reappear until the mining was stopped. Hidden in the thicket is still to see where once the railway line led along. Places like that Taferlsee could only be caused by the former mining. I always find it fascinating to see how quickly nature recaptures the landscape.
After about 13 kilometers, the Bierradweg ends in Aldersbach, but not the Lower Bavaria Tour. In the rustic Bräustüberl of the monastery, In the beautiful Vilstal, I still recommend a break with Bavarian delicacies and of course a beer from the in-house brewery. If you have time, you should go to one Guided tour of the brewery take part and of course a look in and in the beautiful monastery church, with frescoes, stucco and gold leaf throw. (Attention: The church is currently closed due to an extensive renovation).
