Tours along the Danube Planet Trail
Even a short walk from the Sun to Jupiter (780 m) or to Saturn (1.3 km) can give you an impression of the width of the planetary system, allows you to experience the size of the sun and the minuteness of the earth and the moon.
Take a longer walk or an inliner hike from Vilshofen harbor to Hofkirchen to the smaller dwarf planets – even faster than the speed of light.
