Danube Beach in Weissenkirchen is Safe and Clean 

The well maintained sand beach is clean and has a lot of visitors in summer. Because the water is shallow it is well suited for small children. Large boulders slow down the current so that it is safe to swim here. However, the Danube is a big stream that recieves a lot of it’s water from the mountains. Thus, the water can be quite cool even at the peak of summer! If you don’t want to make your feet wet you can still go there to enjoy the nice view. From the beach you can watch cars using the roll ferry to change to the other side of the river. It is also an excellent spot to see plenty of barges and cruise ships passing by on the river. Not far from the beach is the famous Weissenkirchen church. Make sure to check it out!
