About Deggendorf: 
Deggendorf aspires to great heights: the city itself reaches from the banks of the Danube river to the peaks of the Bavarian Forest, a rise in altitude of 800 meters. In earlier days, that was quite a trek on foot. In addition, the city lies directly on a former, important European trade route. Large excursions of tradesmen stopped in Deggendorf while traveling on the Danube to the east towards the Boehmer Forest and back. Deggendorf directly benefited from this trade. The city seal says it all: the open gate with waves symbolizes both the attitude and mobility of this little city on the Danube in east-Bavaria
