Artist location Kallmünz
The painter and professor Charles Johann Palmié, who had traveled from Munich, chose a newly opened inn in Kallmünz as his home during the summer holidays in 1901. He also gave the tavern the name "Zur Roten Amsel" and illustrated his facade with his friends from Munich al fresco. Palmié called Kallmünz the "Pearl of the Naab Valley". Kallmünz soon became a landscape-inspiring attraction for painters, who came here in increasing numbers and sometimes also settled permanently. As early as 1901, the artist colony numbered 38 painters. Kallmünz became best known through the several weeks' stay of Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter in the summer of 1903. Kandinsky then developed a new style of painting with which he turned away from figurative painting and turned to the abstract art of "color sounds" (as he put it).
Today there are some galleries that show the works of local artists as well as those of guest artists. Another artist and art sponsor who is involved in the entire region and especially in Kallmünz is Ludwig Bäuml, who has been working in Kallmünz since 1989.

The nature reserve "Weltenburger Enge" with the impressive Danube breakthrough
In 2020 it was awarded the "First National Natural Monument in Bavaria". Experience the breakthrough of the Danube from the water - relaxed on board an excursion boat or on a boat hiking tour. If you prefer to have solid ground under your feet, you can also explore the unique nature reserve on foot or by bike.
Afterwards, a visit to the beautiful beer garden of Weltenburg Abbey is worthwhile.
35.8 km to Kelheim (ship's place)
The monasteries had been serving guests - pilgrims, craftsmen, visitors (in Weltenburg also fishermen and boatmen) - for ages. However, the first license for a pub in Weltenburg was not applied for until 1826 in the then secularized monastery.
