Shortly after Beuron the soul begins to dangle on the romantic route. Look, this fantastic Danube bridge!
Danube bridge shortly before Werenwag.
At the top of the rock you can see some castles. I took a picture from the castle Werenwag. The castle was probably built around 1100. The tower is from the 12th century. Until 1629 living in the castle was difficult, because only then a ramming pumping station pumped water up.
Again and again small bridges lead across the young Danube. Every rock here has a name and many a story.
After the leisurely ride in the Danube valley, a strenuous ascent begins up to the Inzigkofen monastery ruins.
At the top you drive through this park to the monastery courtyard.
The former Augustinian nunnery of Inzigkofen was founded in 1354. The present building dates from 1659-63 and features a cloister, prelate's hall and stucco ceilings.
The former collegiate church of St. Johannes Baptist has a tower from 1484, but was rebuilt in 1780. In the process, it was given its present, largely classicist form. The building has an impressive high altar. The nun's gallery shows an artistic latticework of twigs and papier-mâché.
