Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Passau is a delightful city on the Danube. We went there to begin a river cruise, but wandered around the town stopping in churches and walking through parks and along the River. (We recommend walking along the Inn River, which is on the other side of town from the Danube where all the cruise ships dock.) Most shops were closed because we were there on Sunday, but the town is beautiful!

We visited Passau during a river cruise stop at this location.

The old town also known as the Altstadtand has a distinct Baroque flavour.

There was a devastating fire in 1662.

From 1892 until 1894, Adolf Hitler and his family lived in Passau.

Its known as the "City of Three Rivers" as the river Danube is joined by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north. As a result flooding is a common issue here.

The city is dotted with churches which are worth seeing.

The heart of the old town is the Residenzplatz (or Residence Square). Here you can see the Cathedral, Residence Building, cafes, shops, and a central fountain known as Wittelsbacherbrunnen.

As with all the other German cities we visited during our river cruise they are all historical and well preserved.

Another lovely old town.

The Altes Rathaus is worth the time and effort for a visit. Several of the public chambers are open to the public; rest rooms are free; and a small exhibit area is interesting. The largest of the chambers has lofty ceilings and stained glass windows and appears to be in use by the city. Seating and sound system is in place suggesting large gatherings.

Another smaller room appears to be a council chamber with a magnificent baroque ceiling fresco of the Danube, depicted by a Reubenesque nude figure attended by water nymphs. See it if you can.

Enjoy.

Passau is a beautiful city to visit and great for walking tours. Walk up to the castle overlooking Passau across the Danube (30 mins) for an exceptional view of the Old Town and surrounding region. Next, walk around the Old Town, exploring all the churches and tight lovely streets. Finally, cross the River Inn and visit the Roman Museum for a great explanation of why Passau was so important to the Roman Empire. There are lots of good gasthofs with riverview for lunch or dinner.

This is a charming little city with some great vistas from many different angles. This is but one of them! The views form the top are worth the hike!

I live within the oldtown and can honestly say I have new experiences everytime I stroll around. This part of Passau has a lot to offer, nice small boutiques, coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants, the cathedral, lots of alleys with hidden treasures. Be aware streets are mainly made of cobble stones so good shoes are recommended and for wheel chairs its not the optimal surrounding.

We spent three days strolling this beautiful town, walking along the Danube, climbing up to the Fortress, visiting l Baroque gorgeous churches, and leisurely shopping. It was like a fairy-tal outdoor restaurants were great to stop for ice creams or coffee.

This is an attractive City Hall with stone tower which is adjacent to the river. It is worth a stop to see the high water marks from previous year's floods. It is worth a stop but you won't need more than five minutes or so. It is a good meeting point as it is visible from a large part of the city.

Whilst on an Emerald Danube River Cruise we stopped in Passau and saw this beautiful building. The most interesting thing externally are the water marks which are located at the corner of the building. Due to the fact that Passau is known as the "City of Three Rivers"it suffers regularly from flooding. Last year in 2013 it suffered its worst flooding in 500 years. Inside there are many paintings.
