Look up to see the naked rear-end of St. Hey, are those people naked…. Yeah, they sure are. I was so distracted by the skinny-dippers I forgot about Munich. Yup, thanks to some 11th century Benedictine monks who started making this stuff. One of the biggest towns besides Munich along the Isar is Landshut. You could grab a meal at a restaurant that was once a 15th century cellar — but that means no view of the Isar.
The Isar flows right through the middle of town; and you can do everything from whitewater rafting and canoeing to fishing, to bird watching at the bird sanctuary, to partying at the Medieval Market every two years on even numbered years. Every four years Plattling holds a Nibelung Festival in honor of the Nibelungenliedwhich brings thousands of fans of the medieval story of Siegfried and Kriemhilde to town. On it goes to Deggendorfwhere the Isar empties into the equally mighty Danube River.
But you should know before you make the trek along this northly flowing river — it can flood.

It is just a 2-minute walk from Regensburg Cathedral and a minute walk from Regensburg Train Station. This privately-run hotel offers unique, historic accommodation in the heart of the picturesque Old Town of Regensburg, just a short stroll from the Regensburger Dom cathedral. It's in the German federal state of Bavaria, at the northernmost point of the river Danube.
Acting as capital of the district of Upper Palatinate and also its biggest settlement, Regensburg today is a thriving city of aboutinhabitants, two universities and many landmarks and little chapels, most dating back to the Middle Ages e.
According to legend there are so many chapels here, that there would always be at least one church bell ringing. Since Because of its narrow alleys Regensburg is often called the northernmost city of Italy. For the following years the fortress served as the Romans main military base in the province of Raetia. After the Romans left the area during the Barbarian Invasions, the town became a civil settlement.
Being granted one of the first seats of a bishopric on German territory inRegensburg grew to strength and prosperity during the Middle Ages.
The builders needed nearly years until to complete this task. Both the Stone Bridge and the Regenburg Cathedral survived unchanged and are the city's main sights today. Napoleon forced Regensburg to agree to become a part of the Kingdom of Bavaria inwhich set an end to the city's political importance. However, Regensburg economically regained strength because of its role as a river port for crude oil imports from Eastern Europe.
Although Regensburg was target to 20 allied bombings during World War II, because it was home to one of Messerschmitt's main aircraft factories as well as an oil refinery, the historic city center took only little damage. In the university was founded and several large companies like Siemens, BMW, Infineon, and Toshiba built factories in the city. The main attraction of Regensburg is its excellently preserved medieval city centrewith Regensburg Cathedral and the Stone Bridge being the highlights.
As one of the few cities in Germany mostly undamaged during World War II, Regensburg boasts the largest preserved medieval city centre in Germany. It is sometimes called "the northernmost city of Italy" due to the lively places and streets with lovely outdoor cafes during summer, as well as the large number of Italian-style medieval merchant houses and towers.
The historic centre lies next to the river Danube German: Donauand crossing the medieval stone bridge into the town provides a perfect entrance to the city and a great view over the whole historic city centre. Regensburg has got a lot of churches, chapels and former monasteries.
According to legend there are so many of them, that there would always be at least one of them ringing. The page with its text, images and graphics is subject to individual property rights.

Rising at an elevation of 5, feet 1, m in the Karwendelgebirgejust northeast of Innsbruck, Austriathe Isar runs west and then north crossing into Germany at Scharnitz Pass. The river there flows through a deep gorge that was used by the ancient Romans, who called it Porta Claudia. A rail line and road now thread the gorge. Turning east and north once again, the Isar emerges upon the Bavarian plain to flow northeast through Munich; it finally enters the Danube downstream from Regensburg.Fliegenfischen auf Huchen / 120 cm / Monster

It may be possible that the ancient name of the lower part of the river Danube, Ister, has the same source. Newer interpretations [ which? The Isar drains a substantial part of the Alps and parts of the Karwendel mountains northeast towards the Danube river and thus finally towards the Black Sea.
The drainage basin contains some 9, square kilometers 3, square miles. During the winter most of the precipitation in the Alps falls as snow. This results in an increased water flow during the spring meltdown. It has an average discharge of cubic meters 6, cubic feet per second. This makes it comparable to other medium-sized rivers in Germany, like the MoselleLech or Main. The official head of the Isar is located in the Hinterau valley east of the village Scharnitz in the Karwendel mountains in Tyrol at a height above sea level of 1, metres 3, feet.
Further on the young Isar is supplied water by the Birkkarbach, which has its source at the foot of the highest mountain of the Karwendel, the Birkkarspitze and the Moserkarbach. Having entered Upper Bavaria after ca. Here it is fed into the giant downpipes of the Walchensee power plant.
From here it flows into the river Loisach, Isar's second most important tributary. Not far down the river a large reservoir called Sylvensteinsee was created between and to make more energy generation possible and also to avoid flooding. It has prevented some bad floods in Munich, for example inand most important, in In that year for the first time ever water had to be released from the lake because its capacity was exhausted. Flooding was barely avoided in Munich, literally 'by the width of one hand'.
This town marks the river's transit from its upper to its middle course. It now flows through a sub-alpine, glacial morainic landscape towards Wolfratshausen. Just north of the town it absorbs the Loisach, including the water previously drained off for the power plant. The Isar continues on to and through the Munich gravel plaininto which it cuts a narrow, steeply sloped valley. The latter finally opens up and ends within the city limits of Munich.
Further downstream the river passes Freising and then absorbs the waters of the Amperits most important tributary, at Moosburg. This is where its lower course begins. Passing Landshut, the river makes its way through the Tertiary Hills of Lower Bavaria all the way into the Danube valley.
Its mouth at the Danube some five kilometres away from Deggendorf is at metres 1, feet above sea level. Thus the Isar descends some metres 2, feet from its head to its mouth.
Most of the small islands and gravel banks keep changing shape and size due to the annual floods. Some of the islands within the bigger cities were built up during the 19th century and thus protected against the abrasive powers of the water.
It is quite likely that the Isar was used as a trade route, even in prehistoric times, to transport wares from the Alps and even Italy towards the Danube with rafts. An existing trade road from the Inn valley across Seefelder Pass into the northern foothills of the alps was built up and called Via Raetia by the Romans.
The town of Mittenwald thus became an important trade post in the Werdenfelser Land. At a few places the Romans built wooden bridges across the Isara so they could cross the river with its strong currents more easily. One of these could have been along the Roman road from Salzburg to Augsburg south of contemporary Munich. Thus trade traffic could easily be controlled and income from tolls was frequent and regular.In 2-ball betting where a price is not offered for the tie then bets will be void in the event of a tie.

The main map was excellent where our route was plotted out for us. Just loved the whole experience. Each day seemed to be better than the previous such a beautiful country of contrasts. Put plenty of photos on Facebook and so many of our friends did not realise how amazing and picturesque Iceland is. The day tours were excellent, particularly the ones from Hofn, Isafjordur and Akureyri. We are really grateful to the guides on these tours for making them so interesting and special.
This vacation was our honeymoon. We had just got married in the states a few days prior to the start of our trip. We had the most incredible experience. Everything was just wonderful. Working with our travel agent, Maria, for months prior, could not have been a better experience.
She was so helpful, always quick to respond, answered all of my (many. My sister secretly reached out to her to choose a restaurant to treat us to dinner for the last night of our trip, and Maria's suggestion was perfect. I especially loved the folder we received upon arrival that included vouchers for each day. This was helpful to enter in the destination to the car's GPS to help us get around.
Not only did it suggest what to do each day, but it gave you a little history of each item. Since we were on our own most of the trip, these little blurbs of info gave me a nice bit of history, the perfect amount.
The section at the end that provided helpful tips on traveling, money, tipping, weather, packing, etc. I could not have asked for a better experience at any stage of planning or the trip itself. Sofia was very, very helpful. This is our second tour with Nordic Visitor.
Last year we went to Greenland was impressed with Nordic Visitor and booked another vacation. The location of hotels and quality of hotels was excellent. All hotels were close to train stations and also close to tourist activities. As this was our first time to Sweden, Denmark and Norway I did have questions and Sofia was very quick to answer them.
This is our type of vacation as we prefer self guided over group tours. I would recommend your company and in fact have already done so. Again, a big thank you to Sofia. We had no issues during our stay. The hotels were well located in relation to the train stations, and were of a high standard.
The voucher system worked well and presented no difficulties. Pity about the rain in Bergen, but the locals told us, that it always rains in Bergen. Already recommended the trip to friends.
