Image of the Month
Along the Danube River near Kelheim, Bavaria you’ll find the Benedictine abbey of Weltenburg. Standing on the banks of the river, it’s believed to be the oldest monastery in Bavaria – founded in 617. Today, it continues its pastoral responsibilities, but it’s also open to the public and serves some of the oldest and tastiest brewed beer in the world!
