Wonderful sight

The building is bright clear and clean. You can truly enjoy it from the Inn side with a bright blue sky!

Very nice palace of the bishop. Great to see its ornamentation and sculptured subjects. The outside courtyard is clean and welcoming.

Passau was a stop on our cruise down the Danube. This palace is a must visit. it is across the Danube from Passau, high above the city. There is a decent museum and places to look over Passau. A shuttle will take one up and back for a low cost, and there is a set of steps of the side... More
