    Dirndl City

    July 14 in Germany

    Alleys where shoulders can almost touch each building, passing cars drive on the curb so we can pass, drindl and laderhosen everywhere, biggest organ in the world, red potted geraniums all all possible places, Passau, after floods and fires, is neat and new(er) and very story book. Glacial reasons makes the river smell like the ocean, there are picnics and full cafes, Saturday markets .... very holiday.

    Germany / For Erica

    August 11, 2017 in Germany

    11th August 2017
    Hi kid. I've attached some interior photos of the boat. Quiet nice but after being on a big cruise boat this is really different. Mostly old people on this boat...lot older. Sometime feels like a rest home where everyone looks forward to meal times. We have done all the outings so far. Bed is smaller then the hotels but comfy. They clean our room twice a day. Staff are friendly and professional.
    Must admit the food is superb and presentation is fancy. We got invited to the Chef's table last night (similar to captains table). Got served 7 course dinner.....amazing flavours. We are blossoming.
    Tomorrow we have to change ships. Apparently because of the river levels we can't proceed in this boat to Amsterdam. We are changing to the sister ship Ama Venita which is exactly the same as this boat Ama Reina.

    Salzburg / Germany / Passau

    August 11, 2017 in Germany

    Crossed the border into Germany. Took the train again and now heading to Passau to re meet our boat. Had a lovely surprise on this trip with opera singers entertaining us. Singing songs from The Sound of Music etc. Awesome and very memorable. Disappointed to find out a few discrepancies in the movie of the The Sound of Music and the actual facts. She was 27 .He was 42. They did not escape over the hills to Switzerland as over the hills would have lead them straight to Hitlers hideaway called Eagles Nest.They just popped down the road and got a mini train to freedom. Also they had 2 more children and there landed up being 9 children in total.Read more

    December 23, 2017 in Germany

    We spent most of the day cruising the river but docked at Passau in the afternoon. Was a lovely town and had a very nice Christmas market. This was the last Christmas market we will see because tomorrow is 24 December. Everything is closed on the 24th and traditions are such that it is a day of rest. They have a special thing they do at 10:30 when they eat pretzels and drink beer. In the evening after dinner We had a visit from the local Bavarian Umpah band and they were very entertaining. They played the spoons and they did the heel/foot/side slapping dance, they also played the drinking song MANY timesRead more

    Great Dinner and Show

    July 1, 2016 in Germany

    In Passau we had dinner in the specialty restaurant. It was small plates, paired with wine served in an intimate setting. Just wonderful. Also three great classical artists came on board to perform. The program was mostly clasical but some show tunes and gypsy selections.

    Passing Through Passau

    May 18, 2015 in Germany

    Before breakfast I saw a little deer grazing on the bank of the Danube. Around 10 am we arrived in the city and started a 90 minute walking tour with our guide Martina. It ended at the cathedral, but we decided to go back to the bishop's residence to tour it quickly before the noon organ concert in the cathedral. I'm so glad we did. The first floor housed a library. The second held an art collection. The third floor led to a gallery overlooking the high altar, giving me unobstructed access to the front of the church. I photographed everything up in the sanctuary from about forty feet away, and from a third floor level. I think I made some magnificent photographs. Next we walked down by the Inn River to find the church attached to the Jesuit convent. It was simple and beautiful. We sat there in silence for several minutes before going out to find the Jesuit church. Though we found it fairly quickly, it was locked tight. Next we found a deli and I enjoyed a liver cheese sandwich. Strangely, this liverkase contains neither liver nor cheese. It is a kind of thick sliced baloney, served with hot potato salad and a good local beer. As we walked further toward St. Paul's Church, we grabbed two ice cream cones. When we got to the church, I was impressed with its beauty. Though not nearly as elaborate as the cathedral, it holds a lovely reredos made of black ebony wood. The whole effect of the altar is quite masculine. I loved it. A cherry streusel and coffee followed, and we found our meeting place well in advance of our 5:30 pm deadline. We came back to the ship and I enjoyed a dinner of osso bucco before retiring.Read more
