Despite its city status, Passau is a relatively small settlement, with a population of around 50,000 people and a centre which can be easily explored on foot. Many of the city’s highlights line the three rivers which fork through Passau, accommodating culturally stimulating strolls along the banks of the waterways.
Thanks to the close proximity of Passau to the borders of the Czech Republic and Austria, the city enjoys a multicultural atmosphere. And although the population is only made up of a small percentage of students, the historic city remains vibrant with a large number of traditionally appointed restaurants and beerhalls on offer.
If you’re lucky enough to drop anchor in Passau during the summer months, the city boasts a large number of beer gardens, allowing you to enjoy the German sun with a Bavarian beer. There truly is no more authentic way to pay homage to the Bavarian region when holidaying within the Passau city limits.
