Everything about this fortress appealled to me. We caught the minibus up from the old town which deposited us out side the huge gates. On entering the museum we viewed amazing exhibits from Roman times to the 15th century. The security guard was amazing and...More

Really well cared for Castle in a prime position. We didn’t have time to tour however being able to walk around the extensive courtyards and explore on our own was great. Worth a look.

A very old fortress located on a hill now converted into a museum and hostel. A restaurant also available. The view from this site is great. It overlooks the town of old passau and we can also see where the 3 rivers meet. Lovely place

Well l worth the walk across the Danube River and the long walk up the hill. We are 75 years old and made the trip. The museum was closed in mid-December when we visited but the views are outstanding. We recommend the Oberhaus trek.

Three rivers meet in Passau and the Danube continues on. From the Oberhaus you can see all three rivers and overlook the city of Passau. It’s an uphill walk but not hard if you are in shape at all. Well worth the view at the...More
