The Danube Gorge has both a gentle and a strange beauty. Between Kelheim and Weltenburg a remarkable rocky panorama opens up where the river Danube has carved its course through hard limestone rock.

Wild, romantic river landscape
In a magnificent show of force, the Danube has carved its way through the Swabian Alb to create a stunning landscape - a wild, romantic stretch of river with sheer cliffs rising up to 100 metres out of the water. A river cruise is the most exciting way to experience the romantic Danube Gorge.

Ciao Jurek,great view of fantastic place, wonderful natural colors and beautiful Grey sky, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Jurek,

truly remarkable and evocative this Danube Gorge's glimpse.Maybe also thanks to the livid sky, the appearance a bit gloomy, hazy, of this place is full of atmosphere.POV allows us to "enter" in deep within the image, catching its many facets.A really intriguing place.



Hi Jurek,
well seen and well captured documentation of a remarkable landscape that I would not have expected to look that wild and spectacular. At first glace I thought to see Portile de fier, the famous gorge of the Danube between Romania and Serbia. Your image and notes have made me courious to visit that place in Germany! With thanks and best regards,

Bonjour jurek,
Joli paysage qui donne envie de sortir son canoé.
Jolies couleurs.

Hello Jurek
A beautiful picture of this historic river, great light and composition, beautiful. Well done!
Regards Hedesan

Lieber Georg,
Da scheinst Du auf dem Schiff gewesen zu sein um uns die Donau von diesem Standpunkt zu zeigen. Sieht sehr wild aus, der Fluss hat sich einen Weg durch diese Felslandschaft schaffen müssen. Das Format scheint mir nicht ganz glücklich, ich hätte es entweder quadratischer oder dann horizontaler präsentiert, das ist aber nur ein Vorschlag.
Herzlich grüsst

hello Jurek
very nice picture of this river
greet details and beautiful colours
thanks greeting lou

Ciao Jurek. The perfect management of spaces in stunning details and sharp. Exciting tones for the wild environment.

Hallo Jurek,
bei uns im oberen Donautal zwischen Tuttlingen und Sigmaringen ist die Donau zwar noch nicht so groß, aber die Kalksteinwände sind auch zum Teil bis zu 200m hoch. Deshalb liebe ich solche Anblicke einfach.
Viele Grüße aus dem Donautal,
