  • This old town hall naturally enjoys a prominent site in the heart of the medieval city. Interesting historically and it remains a meeting place in its square, which is a great place to take a break...

  • Lovely building with great views across the Danube. Passau is a truly beautiful place to visit with plenty to do and see.
  • There is one main road that only city buses can drive on. The streets are very narrow. No matter where you look it is beautiful.
