Altmühl Valley: A wooden bridge in Essing

Picturesque valley dotted with medieval villages

The Altmühl River, a tributary of the Danube, meanders through a lush valley at its lower end. The valley and the surrounding medieval villages are all part of the largest natural park in Germany. Of the towns along the river, Eichstätt is one of the most picturesque. Founded in 908, the city boasts a treasure-filled Romanesque cathedral on the magnificent Residenzplatz, a square lined with baroque and rococo palaces.
