  • The old town hall is a beautiful building located near the Danube. It houses the tourist office. Levels of the floods of the Danube over the years are shown on the wall. The story of 2013 to reach 26 feet and the only one that has surpassed it dates back to the middle ages.

  • This is an attractive City Hall with stone tower which is adjacent to the river. It is worth a stop to see the high water marks from previous year's floods. It is worth a stop but you won't need more ...  more »
  • We have seen only from outside the front door. The town hall is the only room in the Rathaus and even if the ticket has a modest cost, I don't know if it's worth.

  • 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!
