The famous baroque city is the central hub of the Passau Land region. On your holiday agenda, by no means should you miss out on visiting this place!
Thereby, the cathedral St. Stephan, which is home to the largest cathedral organ in the world, is one of the most impressive highlights. Further highlights include the river triangle where the Danube, Inn and Ilz flow together, the Veste Oberhaus (one of the largest fortresses in Europe) with an unparalleled panorama view of the city as well as magnificently decorated halls in the Old City Hall.
And in the idyllic beer gardens, rustic restaurants and numerous street cafés, you can take a little break from your cultural programme.
Passau is a very particular cultural and artistic centre. The festival “Festspiele Europäische Wochen” (European music festival) is among the most significant cultural events that is considered an international highlight among music festivals. The event entitled “Passauer Kabaretttage” offers lively and sophisticated first-class cabaret.
Furthermore, renowned galleries and museums show an array of cultural items spanning from the early days to the present. Numerous artists located in the Höllgasse offer creative handicrafts. Various types of theatre, opera and concerts round off the extensive offer.
