Passau, the city of the three rivers

Shortly before Passau we pass the Krastel Power Plant.

Here we cross the river Danube and cycle into the city – lots of tourists and a lot of cobblestones. Passau lies on the border with Austria and at the confluence of the rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz. That is why Passau is also called the Three Rivers City. It was never quite clear who flows into whom – the Inn into the Danube or vice versa – in any case, the Danube has won and can continue its way into the Black Sea.

The St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Passau dominates the cityscape. The two towers can be seen from afar. The organ is considered to be the largest cathedral organ in the world.

After we have “hopped” all over Passau, we cycle back to Vilshofen. We have arrived at the end of our Danube journey through southern Germany. The next morning it was pouring rain and saying goodbye was not difficult. Thanks for cycling along and see you next time!
