Direction

You cycle out of town along the banks of the Isar. The Altheim reservoir and hydroelectric power station are flanked by a fish ladder. By means of an attracting current, it guides the migratory fish and enables them to continue their fish migration unharmed.

The bank is lined with beautiful deciduous forest. A detour to the Gretlm├╝hle is worthwhile if you want to refresh yourself with a short swim in the lake. Further ahead, on the opposite bank of the Isar, you will see the facilities of the inactive nuclear power plant. In Niederaichbach, a small spa treatment awaits you with the Kneipp facility.

Kneipp facility Niederaichbach

In the old village, near the Nikolaikirche Niederaichbach, there is a free "spa treatment" for everyone directly in the clear Aichbach. From the shore, the railing in the stream helps you to focus safely on the healthy water treading. The Kneipp facility guides visitors through proper Kneipping on several display boards. In the arm bath, visitors strengthen their defences just as much as with the refreshing foot showers. Since the effects can only really unfold in the peace and quiet, there is seating available in the shade.

Direction

You cycle from Niederaichbach further east along the banks of the Isar. Old trees line the banks and provide shade. Leave Gummering and Loiching on your right. At Teisbach, the river opens up to the Dingolfing reservoir.
In Dingolfing, you can take a look at the important and beautiful St. Johannes parish church from Steinweg.

Ducal Castle Dingolfing

The Herzogsburg Dingolfing is a former administrative building of the dukes of the Landshut partial duchy. The complex consists of three buildings: the Herzogsburg itself, the Pfleghof and the Getreidekasten. They were built between 1410 and 1477. Today, the Herzogsburg is one of the most beautiful and important Gothic secular buildings in Lower Bavaria.
The Dingolfing Museum is housed in all three buildings. The eventful and rich history of the town and its surroundings is brought to life with the help of numerous archaeological finds and artefacts from contemporary history. The exhibition spans the time from the Neolithic Age to the present day.
