Thanks to some TripAdvisors we managed to find the entry to the 'Wallfahrtsstiege '- the covered walkway Pilgrim stairs to the Mariahilf Kloster. The directions are not clear so it was good to know what to look for! There are over 300 steps up to...More

From the Danube docks, the walk to the pilgrimage steps near Kapuzinerplatz took about 20 minutes. From Kapuzinerplatz, look for the sign ("Wahlfahrtsstiege") to the entrance. We ascended the...More

One of the most memorable things you'll do in Passau is climb up the covered pilgrims' steps to the Mariahilf church overlooking the river Inn. You can read all the prayers for help left there as you climb. It's not as spectacular as other sights,...More

There was a service underway when we arrived at the location, so we did not go inside...but enjoyed the challenging walk up the hill to this landmark. There are some lovely spots along the way to get pictures back across the Danube to St Stephen's...More

The church is worth a visit but more unique is the covered walkway going up the steep hillside we could only enter from the top near the church. Plenty of parking in car park above the church and walk a couple hundred meters

This was a side trip without much expectation but were we wrong! The Church is lovely, historic and a Baroque masterpiece. It is wide open so you are free to visit all the nooks and crannies, photograph to your heart's content and even sit through...More
