Eichstätt by foot

Eichstätt is also charming by foot. Located wonderfully and with magnificent views particularly the “Altmühl-Panoramaweg” (panorama-route) is the center of the touristic interest. But also the pilgrimage Way of St. James and the “Fossilienweg” (way of fossils) have their charms, undoubtlessly.

Along the Altmühl through Eichstätt by boat

From the water, you can discover Eichstätt from a totally different perspective. The river Altmühl passes through the middle of the scenic Altmühltal and therefore, also through Eichstätt.
