The last large white water rapids in Eastern Germany, the Ilz stretches from the Bavarian Forest to the picturesque City of Three Rivers, Passau. The “Black Pearl”, as the prize-winning riverscape is cordially named by inhabitants, is an El Dorado for nature lovers, long-distance hikers as well as adventurers, both big and small.
Hiking in the Ilztal & Dreiburgenland promises crystal-clear streams, romantic lakes, aromatic flower-filled meadows, and odd cliff formations in addition to unexpected views and impressions. Our adventure routes have catchy names such as Goldsteig (award-winning long-distance trail), Via Nova (pilgrimage route to the Czech Republic) and Pandurensteig.
However, there are also unexpected things to be discovered off the beaten track of the Ilz. Did you know that the Bavarian Forest Museum Village is one of the largest open-air museums in Europe? And who would expect to find an authentic western city here in Eastern Bavaria along with a wild herd of bison on Main Street?
Part of the interesting Ilztal history also entails the densely wooded stretch of land along the left bank. It once belonged to the land under the possession of the Niedernburg monastery and was the heartland of the prince-bishopric under the direct, immediate authority of the emperor. The “Goldene Steig”, a 1,000-year-old trade route that connected Bavaria with Bohemia, led through the towns of Salzweg and Büchlberg. You can discover the treasures of the region on foot, by e-bike or on horseback both comfortably and in an environmentally-friendly manner: e.g. the natural monument “Bergholz”, an idyllic lake between the high granite rocks of an abandoned stone quarry, the natural swimming lake Eginger See or the Dreiburgensee.
