Kelheim is a municipality in Bavaria, capital of the district Kelheim. It is situated at the confluence of Altmühl and Danube. It is the site of a large Iron Age oppidum from the La Tène period, which has been tentatively identified as the Celtic city of Alcimoennis. The ramparts of the fort cross the promontory between the rivers Altmühl and Danube.
Kelheim has a beautifully preserved old quarter with towers and gates dating from the Middle Ages. High above the town is the Hall of Liberation, an enormous rotunda. Weltenburg Abbey sits beneath the cliffs of the Danube Gorge. It is regarded as the oldest abbey in Bavaria and has its own brewery.
