Kloster Weltenburg is Bavaria’s oldest monastery. It is situated a short distance south of Kelheim, along the river Danube and near the Donaudurchbruch gorge. River cruises often leave for the monastery from Kelheim. The complex dates from the early 7th century, and was used by Benedictine monks. It was rebuilt in a Baroque style, and the Klosterkirche St. Georg church was constructed by the Asam brothers. The interior of this church is a major attraction, with intricately carve high altar, as well as some fantastic works of art. The monastery brews its own beers, and serves them in their own restaurant.
