We crossed the river on a small
ferry at Niederalteich. The on-demand ferry was scheduled
to open at 10am and we were about twenty minutes early.
While we were discussing whether to wait or continue
on that side the boatman arrived and waved us aboard.
We bought lunch ingredients at Vilshofen. The traffic
was heavy and impatient and we had trouble finding the
path. After a few kilometers we reached Sandbach where
we recrossed the Danube on another small on-demand ferry,
again with a cheerful boatman.
We ate lunch on the river bank by the ferry. The supermarket
didn’t sell the usual 250ml bottles of wine so
we had bought a standard size bottle intending to pour
away the surplus. The day was hot, the view beautiful
and very little was wasted.
