VILSHOFEN, GERMANY — Saturday & Sunday, December 5 & 6

Experience small — town Bavarian life in Vilshofen, a town where three rivers flow into the Danube (the Pfudrach, Vils and Wolfach Rivers). We’ll do a walking tour of the town, which is perched on a headland between the Danube and Vils Rivers. You’ll see the town’s tightly packed old quarter with characteristic Inn — Salzach style architecture. The Schweiklberg Benedictine abbey, the Church of St. John the Baptist, and the circa 1060 AD Hausbach round church are a hint to Vilshofen’s longtime prosperity as a toll town on the Danube. While Vilshofen is very much a town run by the residents for the residents, AMA Waterways is treating its guests to a mini — “Oktoberfest” — style celebration, featuring pretzels, music, and Pilsner Urquell beer (developed by native Josef Groll).
