Welcome to Straubing
The early visitors, the first “tourists” of the 19th century were enthusiastic about the beauty of Straubing. The town’s position on the Danube, the vast town square full of colourful live, the varied churches and historical monuments fascinate visitors even today. Let yourself be charmed by the flair of the old ducal town on the Danube, immerse yourself in the relaxed Bavarian atmosphere of life and embark on a journey of discovery in the centuries-old history of Straubing.

Idyllically situated on the river Danube – between Regensburg and Passau – and in the vicinity of the Bavarian Forest, Straubing receives its visitors with an impressive urban silhouette.
It is a fact that Straubing’s history started more than 2000 years ago, traces of the first human settlements even date back to almost 8000 years. Around two centuries B.C. the Celts settled in the fertile plain of the Danube, a region which is called „Gäuboden“. They were followed by the Romans and by the early Bavarians.
They all left their marks, for example golden coins, magnificent Roman armours and elegant Bavarian jewellery. Visitors can admire all these finds in the Gäuboden Museum.
Since the 13th century urban life mainly takes place in the medieval town centre around the two squares Ludwigsplatz and Theresienplatz. Here beats the heart of Straubing, here meet locals and visitors for strolling through the town, for shopping and having a chat. The river Danube whose beautiful shore paths invite for walks and bicycle tours is at only a few minutes walking distance from the town centre as well.
In addition to history and tradition Straubing offers lots of attractive events, such as the popular beer festival „Gäubodenfest“ – the second-largest popular beer festival in Bavaria – and “bluetone – The Music Festival on the Danube” which attracts world stars like Nigel Kennedy and Joe Cocker on the Danube or the international music festival Bluval. It doesn’t matter whether you are interested in history, tradition, way of life or festive mood: Straubing has many faces and diversity is our program.
