Coat of arms Dingolfing

I always associated Dingolfing with the automotive industry. In the fifties there was a very innovative company with the name "Glas" which started manufacturing motor scooters and tiny little cars with two stroke engines. They were know as "Goggomobil".
When they brought out a small car with 4-stroke engines they used for the first time timing belts for the overhead camshaft. Later they built even a car with a V8 engine but run in financial problems.
BMW took over the company and today you will find a state-of-the-art automotive plant here.
Approximately 20 000 people are working here today.
Dingolfing is located in Lower Bavaria on the river Isar which separates the old part of the town from the newer part.
Dingolfing was already mentioned in the year 833 and in 1251 it was declared a town.

Dingolfing town wall
A renovated part of the old town wall with tower

You still can find parts of the old town wall and some towers on your sightseeing tour. Most of the town was destroyed by war in 1743. "Modernization" in the 19th century did further damage.

One of the attractions, the "Hochbrücke" (High Bridge)
Relax and have fun in the "Caprima"

Above bridge was built in 1612 using bricks. It was renovated in 1966 and is still in use.
Ask wether BMW still offers tours through their plant - I hope so. I added a link to a video which shows you what to expect.
Relax after that in one of the pools of the "Caprima" or have a good meal in one of the restaurants.
Use the link below to a video which shows you more about Dingolfing, the events and festivals, the culture as well as the surrounding nature.
