    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.

    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

    Passau

    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.

    Kelheim - Passau

    May 16, 2016 in Germany

    After the worst breakfast to date, things didn't get easier as it was freezing cold and wet. In 30 minutes my hands were so cold I couldn't brake (travelling light - no gloves).

    All shops shut - what's going on? Whit Monday of course. Worse than a Sunday as I had no provisions prepared. A café was sought out opposite a church and coffee and pancake bought time and warmth. A group of old (possibly older than me) men were drinking beer and playing cards and tolerated me taking their photo.

    I dived into another cafe and avoided a downpour while eating good fish soup and fish sausages.

    Reached Passau early and had to decide whether to continue into quiet Austria or stay put. The weather decided for me - too cold and wet to continue despite brief sunny spells.

    Booked into youth hostel but reaching it was another matter. It's located within a schloss up a rock face and going up Whernside is easier. Worth it though for comfort, value and spectacular views : the main photo is from my bedroom window.

    St Stephan's Cathedral

    June 25, 2016 in Germany

    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.

    Passau

    June 25, 2016 in Germany

    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.
