Welcome to Vilshofen, the small town of three rivers, which is situated picturesquely where the river Vils and Wolfach flow into the Danube. Viewed from the opposing river bank, Vilshofen seems to be an island floating on the river. Here, 1200 years of history are still almost palpable. The historic town square with its landmark, the town tower, as well as the church of Saint John, are witnesses of times long passed. The same is true of the small, delicately renovated lanes that link the old town centre with the Danube or of the various monuments such as the Mary Help of Christians church.

But Vilshofen is much more than that; it is a modern, open-minded city of culture. Various events all over the year have established themselves here and have made the town well-known far beyond the borders of Bavaria. Events like "The Danube in Flames", the "floating" Christmas market, the traditional "Volksfest", or cultural events such as the "Days of the Cabaret" in the autumn prove that.

The art gallery (in the town tower) with its changing exhibitions, the newly created town hall gallery, the African Museum in the Benedictine Abbey Schweiklberg, or the works of art in the different sculpture parks show that the city of Vilshofen has a modern appearance as well. Vilshofen on the Danube is an ideal starting point for sightseeing tours in the surrounding area.


You can discover the church of the Asam brothers in Aldersbach, the Roman Museum in Künzing, or numerous pilgrimage churches by using cycle paths and hiking trails, which are in excellent condition. The central location of the town makes it easy to take a trip to the Bavarian Forest, to spas around Vilshofen and to visit sights in the neighbouring countries Austria and the Czech Republic. Take a walk and experience the romantic atmosphere in the historical district of Vilshofen. Enjoy nature in our natural reserve “Vilsengtal” or on our cycle paths and hiking trails. When you stay here, take your time and relax in Vilshofen on the Danube at the “River of Time”.
We're looking forward to seeing you!
