Lower Salzach: Unspoiled jewel at the border to Austria

In contrast to it's upper part, the Salzach from Freilassing to Burgkirchen is one of the last German rivers which is long enough for a real two day's trip without being interrupted by a weir or dam.

Looking back at Burghausen, towered above by Germany's longest castle.

Folding kayak friends - unified.

A campsite like in the folding boat era: On the banks near Tittmoning.

Altmühl: A nice river with a unique opportunity

Being a nice, flat and small river, the Altmühl most probably offers the only way to cross the main European watershed between Rhine and Donau by kayak in the underground, using a artifical tunnel (built to supply the Rhein-Main-Donau canal with water).

Early spring on the Altmühl near Ansbach.

Crossing Europe's main whatershed in the underground by kayak near Gunzenhausen.

Autumn impressions

Even if the German autumn does not have as much colours as the North American 'Indian Summer', it's worth a look.

The Donau breakthrough in autum colours near Kelheim (Bavaria).

Ready to run the Inn near Mühldorf (Bavaria).

Nightfall on the Isar near Landshut (Bavaria).
