Towns & Villages in the Dingolfing-Landau District
Apart from its lovely landscape, here you can find flora more than 7,000 years old and the site of the first gold ever excavated in Europe. Sports facilities, farm vacations, and many other recreational activities are available to serve you.
The town of Landau an der Isar, dating back to 1224, is noted for its Wildthurn Castle and the biggest, most beautiful Baroque church in Lower Isar Valley — the parish of the Virgin Mary (since 1713). From here, follow the Isar past Mamming and Gottfrieding and you will arrive at the district’s capital, Dingolfing.
A stop at the Town Hall in Dingolfing will afford you a look at local history exhibitions and the opportunity to attend lectures and events representative of the district. As it happens, the largest BMW automobile plant in the world is also located here.
In southeastern Simbach, the Bockerlbahn bike path is very popular. You can follow it without steep climbs through Southern Lower Bavaria, along the Isar, Vils, Kollbach and Rottal rivers, past forests, historic buildings and numerous ecosystems.
It is customary to stop along the way as you cycle, dropping by at cozy country inns and beer gardens for lunch or drinks. Enjoying your leisure time here will be easy indeed.
