Coat of arms Vilshofen

Vilshofen is located in the southern part of the Bavarian Forest and on the banks of the Danube.
Three creeks - the Vils, the Pfudrach and the Wolfach - add here more water to the mighty river. We came to Vilshofen when we visited Passau on a long weekend.
It was not on the second weekend in July, so we missed a spectacular event on the Danube called "Donau in Flammen" (Danube on fire) which takes place in th late evening.

Vilshofen - many thanks to Mr. Blank

Please use the link below to watch an amateur video about this event which is one of the most spectacular ones in this region. Naturally with music, food and drinks.
Fortunately all the firework did so far not cause any mayor fire.
Over two hundred years ago the medieval town center was almost completely destroyed by a huge fire. Only the "Stadtturm" survived.
We went on an extensive sightseeing tour by car followed by walking and coffee and cake. We discussed spending whole vacations in the Bavarian Forest.

Tradition in downtown Vilshofen

We would have loved to visit the Jazz and the folklore festivals celebrated in Vilshofen. We always enjoyed it when older and younger people come together to celebrate something and have a good time.
Don't miss a visit to the abbey of Benedictine monks. It is called "Schweiklberg". Try the "Schweiklberger Geist" a special herbal medicine.
Not being aware that I will be called back to Canada we decided to visit the award winning floating "Christkindelmarkt" in Vilshofen.

It became a huge attraction for thousands of visitors - not only from Germany but also from neighboring countries.

I made an exception of my policy and installed a link: Floating "Christkindelmarkt" in Vilshofen
If you get lost in this site use the link "Bilder vom schwimmenden Christkindelmarkt"

Maybe this could inspire some town in Canada such as Welland were we live.

Watch the video "Donau in Flammen 2009 in Vilshofen an der Donau ":

Many thanks for pictures to the Tourist Board of Bavaria and involved communities
