City of Three Rivers

Situated at the confluence of three rivers, including the Danube, Passau is steeped in religious history but has adopted a modern commercial outlook. The city first gained fame as one of the most important hubs in the European salt trade. Passau later went on to become the Holy Roman Empire's largest and rather influential diocese. The city's waterfront is an artistic display of medieval splendor, spires, and churches. Despite its quaint and archaic canvas, Passau today is home to a bustling commercial district, top-notch higher education, and vibrant nightlife. Its 10,000 students make up nearly 20 percent of the city's total population. With its specialized technological institutes considered among the best in Germany, Passau deftly combines two millennia of history with a rapidly developing modernity.
