The centerpiece of Bavaria's Deggendorf district, Deggendorf sits along western banks of the mighty Danube river; sandwiched between the cities of Passau and Regensburg. Its history can be traced back to the Bronze Age when its lands were first settled by primitive Celtic tribes. The city got its first documented mention in 868 when the Holy Roman Emperor Henry II reigned supreme over the territory. Today, Deggendorf is a popular tourist attraction and houses several spectacular sights such as the Metten Abbey, Dreitannenriegel, Isarmündung, and the Handwerksmuseum. From bike tours around town to witnessing historic locations, there is much to see and do in this friendly town.
