  • Great place. The historic centre of Passau, directly on the banks of the Danube, where ships may dock with many tourists

  • Worth the time and effort, interesting information.about the building and area.along with the interesting town. 
  • This old town hall is just beautiful, typical bavarian colors mix with a touch of Eastern European style. You can enter it from a very small entrance on the right side and admire some rooms. 2€

  • I had a wonderful opportunity to sing as member of the Stellenbosch University Choir, South Africa, to perform a concert in this magnificent builing on 24/6/1979. Fondest memories of this beautiful Rathaus, roof paintings and lovely Passau. Would like to visit again!
  • Passau is a very beautiful city. There's much to discover.
