  Port Map

Passau is a Danube River cruise port located in Lower Bavaria, Germany. The town covers a total area of approx 69,58 km2 (26,86 ml2) and has a population of around 50,000 people (including over 11,000 students at the University of Passau). The town is also known as "City of Three Rivers" as Danube here is joined by the rivers Ilz (north) and Inn (south).Passau (Germany) river cruise port

  • Among the Passau's landmarks are the St Stephen's Cathedral (with the world's 2nd biggest church pipe organ - 233 registers, 17774 pipes), after the First Congregational Church's organ in Los Angeles. During summer tourist season, organ concerts at the church are held daily. St.Stephen's is a masterpiece of Italian Baroque, created by Italian architect Carlo Lurago (1615-1684) and decorated by Carpoforo Tencalla (1623-1685).
  • Most of the Danube River cruises offer departures from Passau to Vienna, Austria, and the reverse from Vienna to Passau. There is a cycling path going all the way down to Vienna. The city is also notable for its baroque and gothic architecture. Passau is dominated by Veste Oberhaus and former fortress of the Bishop, located on the mountain crest between Danube and Ilz rivers. Beside the town hall is Scharfrichterhaus, an important cabaret and jazz stage on which political cabaret is featured.
  • An interesting fact is that during the Renaissance and early modern period, the town of Passau was among the most prolific German centres of sword and bladed weapon manufacture (after Solingen). The smiths stamped their blades with Passau wolf, a rather simplified rendering of the wolf on city's coat-of-arms. Warriors who were more superstitious believed that Passau wolf conferred invulnerability on blade's bearer, and this way Passau swords acquired great premium.
  • On June 2, 2013 Passau's old town suffered from severe flooding due to its location at the confluence of 3 rivers and several days of rain. As early as 1501, peak elevations of floods are displayed on a wall at Old City Hall. On average once every five years flood water reaches that wall's base.
  • Due to town's location on the German-Austrian border, as well as in the south-east of the country, the town of Passau has become an important migrant entry point into Germany. Economic migrants and refugees from Asia, Africa and the Middle East, who have reached Europe, usually entering either overland through Greece or across the sea through the Mediterranean, then head north and enter Germany. In 2015 The BBC reported in 2015 that traffickers drive refugees and migrants via Austria and leave them on the autobahn's side. The refugees and migrants then often walk unaccompanied into the city of Passau, the first in Germany situated northwards. The situation caused the government to divert funds from flood prevention to feeding and housing the migrants and refugees.
