Passau

4.3
out of 5

Passau is a small city on the German-Austrian border that’s often overlooked by tourists in favour of its more famous neighbours. But Passau is well worth a visit in its own right, with a charming old town, lovely river setting and a wealth of historical attractions. The city is dominated by the three rivers that flow through it – the Danube, Inn and Ilz – and the architecture reflects this, with Gothic, Romanesque and Baroque buildings lining the riverbanks. Highlights include the ornate St Stephen’s Cathedral, the fortress-like Bishop’s Palace and the lovely old houses of the Fischerviertel district. There’s also a lively cultural scene, with a range of museums and galleries, and a good selection of restaurants and bars.
