Passau is a delightful city on the Danube. We went there to begin a river cruise, but wandered around the town stopping in churches and walking through parks and along the River. (We recommend walking along the Inn River, which is on the other side of town from the Danube where all the cruise ships dock.) Most shops were closed because we were there on Sunday, but the town is beautiful!

Passau is a beautiful old city lying on the stuary of the Danube with the rivers Inn and Ilz, dominated by the Verte Oberhaus - part of the former fortress of the Prince-Bishops on the mountain crest btween the rivers Danube and Ilz -. The sauntering along its narrow and pretty lanes and splendid small squares is very pleasant and relaxing activity. It's an excellent way to admire the architectural jewels which are plentiful in the city concerned, the most emblematic ones being the cathedral and the Town Hall. The former is a breathtaking baroque church with some remnants in gothic style conceived by the Italian architect Carlo Lurago p leasure o and partly decorated by Carpoforo Tencalla. The latter is a wonderfully designed town hall consising of several buildings, whose origin dates back to the thirteenth century. Its tower is really impressive and visible from many points in the city. Some other churches worth visiting in the Passau Old Town are the Jesuits church, St. Michael and St. Paul parish church.
Apart from the already mentioned buildings, walking in Passau Old Town makes it possible to admire other beautiful old buildings in a unique atmosphere) as well as enter workshops an galleries. In the Domplatz), which is a large square before the cathedral, one can contemplate the façade of the Lamberg-Palais, which is an imposing edifice. Not far from there the medieval Old Residence and the baroque New Residence have been the palaces of the Prince-Bishops of Passau.
All the aforesaid details may give an idea about the extreme pleasure felt when strolling in the streets of the Passau Old Town. It's no doubt a priceless experience making one wish to remain yet several days in that marvellous city.

Its all in the title. Passau is beautiful. Only downside is that the visit was expensive. The Irish bar was by far the standout.
In general the restaurants were a rip off. Whose heard of an Italian restaurant without olives? Avoid twenty tre on the other side of the river, and just about anywhere which primarily caters for the large groups on the long river cruisers.

Amazingly beautiful but very unkept. We stayed on the south bank of the Inn and there is a hugely missed opportunity to run a quality path on or along the disused railway. The town itself was quite nice but a bit shabby. Definitely not memorable. The steps up to the Oberhausen were overgrown and poorly maintained as was the Oberhausen itself. Great views though. I love rivers so the Danube and the Inn were magnificent. Please share with the local council. It’s really not with visiting unless they focus on the opportunity they are missing. It could be world class

The Town Hall is located on the Town Hall Square and consists of three buildings.There is the Old Town Hall , New Town Hall and the Town Hall Old Main Customs Office .

The Old Town Hall dates back to 1298.

On the side of the building are marks which depict the heights and dates of the various floods that have inundated the town throughout its history.

Passau is a river port city at the confluence of the Blue Danube, Green Inn and Black Llz rivers. We stopped here on Dec. 13, 2022 as part of a Christmas Market river cruise. Passau has a history of major flooding the most recent and largest was in 2013 when the water level in Hollgasse Artists Alley reached 12.89 meters (42.29 feet).

There is a square here where people congregate and there are places close to eat and drink. But being Nov 1 every thing was pretty much closed due to it being a holiday.

We visited Passau during a river cruise stop at this location.

The old town also known as the Altstadtand has a distinct Baroque flavour.

There was a devastating fire in 1662.

From 1892 until 1894, Adolf Hitler and his family lived in Passau.

Its known as the "City of Three Rivers" as the river Danube is joined by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north. As a result flooding is a common issue here.

The city is dotted with churches which are worth seeing.

The heart of the old town is the Residenzplatz (or Residence Square). Here you can see the Cathedral, Residence Building, cafes, shops, and a central fountain known as Wittelsbacherbrunnen.

As with all the other German cities we visited during our river cruise they are all historical and well preserved.

Another lovely old town.

The pretty old town has steep cobbled streets and Danube walks. There are some lovely buildings too - don't miss the frescoes in the cathedral
