    Dackel

    September 10 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 46 °F

    I'm back in Germany. I stopped for coffee and apple strudel (you have to, right?) and was delighted to find that Passau, Germany, is the homeland of the dachshund.

    TIL that even though dachshund is a very German word (the "chsh" kinda gives it away), they're actually called Dackels here.

    Drei Flüsse in Passau

    July 15 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Das Wetter ist endlich besser und wir beschließen, uns Passau anzuschauen. Wir kommen früh an, sehen den Stephans Dom mit der größten Orgel der Welt (wirklich?) von innen. Theo klettert die ganze Zeit auf den Kirchenbänken herum während Elli die bemalten Decken und den Stuk bewundert. "Mama, da ist eine goldene Rutsche!" (Gemeint ist die Kanzel)
    Die Gässchen der Altstadt sind total hübsch und man kann wunderbar entlang der Inn und der Donau spazieren. Zum Schluss begeben wir uns noch auf ein Ausflugsschiff, um uns die drei Flüsse, die in Passau zusammen fließen, vom Wasser aus anzusehen. Das ist mit den beiden Rabauken eher Abenteuer als entspanntes Sightseeing, aber wir genießen es trotzdem und sind erstaunt, wie gut man die Gewässerfarben beiden großen Flüsse an der Spitze der Halbinsel erkennen kann.

    Nach dem Stadtrundgang sind wir ko, machen lange Mittagspause und spielen im Garten mit den Ziegen und dem Bagger ("Papa, jetzt bin ich Mal dran!") Abends gehen wir nach dem Essen nochmal schwimmen und haben das Reich für uns!

    St Stephan's Cathedral

    June 25, 2016 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    In the heart of Passau on the Old Town’s highest point rises St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in which the world’s largest cathedral organ sounds. Sitting high above the rivers, the majestic fortress Veste Oberhaus on the Danube’s side and the Pilgrimage Church Mariahilf on the Inn’s side frame the city outstanding beauty.Read more

    In Passau many of the Medevial building's were burnt down in the 17th century so the bishops brought Italian artists to build new buildings which is why the buildings have Italian baroque style, ornamentation and frescoes.

    Passau Day 5

    October 24, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 50 °F

    Known as the Venice of Bavaria because it is situated at the juncture of The Inn, Ilz and Danube Rivers, Passau has survived endless floods, most recently in 2013.

    Because it rained so much during the last couple of weeks, we could dock directly in town. ..unlike earlier tours which used buses more often because water levels were very low, after a dry, hot summer. I'm glad we didn't come earlier in the season!

    After breakfast we took a 90 minute walking tour, including the breathless Cathedral of St Stephen. Which is built in the Baroque style and has an exquisite interior of white ornamentation and Italian frescoes. The windows are of clear glass because they are smaller than large stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals and must let in the light.

    The 17,388 pipe organ, the largest in a European Catholic cathedral, is necessary because the heavily ornamented interior absorbs much if the sound. We were surrounded by music during a 30 minute concert at the end of our morning because the organ has five sections: three along the rear wall, one near the altar and the fifth in the ceiling. This was quite a surprise treat from Tauck!

    We're in Passau, Germany.

    How about a pipe organ concert? How about a pipe organ concert played in a huge cathedral on the largest pipe organ in the world.

    Amazing!
