Plattling

Plattling is a town in the district of Deggendorf, in Bavaria, Germany. The town is situated on the river Isar, 9 km southwest of Deggendorf, just before the river enters the Danube. Near the city-center in the river there are a wave/hole which is one of Europe's best play spots for freestyle kayaking. In 2011 the ICF world championship in freestyle kayak were held there. Around the time of World War II, the regions around Plattling became a conservative base of Nazi support, producing top-ranking SS officers like Leo Grasmeier and Heinrich Himmler. Until 1993 both Heinrich Himmler and Adolf Hitler earned places on Plattling's list of 20 Honorable Citizens.
