Passau Private Walking Tour With A Professional Guide
Welcome to the city of three rivers. This is where the rivers Inn and Ilz join the mighty Danube, which makes it ideal as the start of the famous river cruises. At the German border to Austria, this city is a direct connection to many European countries and capitals such as Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade. Thanks to its perfect location by the waterways, it has been an important center of trade since the Middle Ages. For most of its history, Passau was an independent Prince Bishopric state between Bavaria, Austria and Bohemia (Czech Republic), and as a result thereof, has spawned a unique cultural blend of its own. The old town shares with the world many examples of gothic and baroque style , as well as a myriad of traditional shops to seduce visitors from all over.
