Passau is located right next to the Austrian border and is a small town that takes about two hours by train from Munich. Passau is a city where the Donau River, Ingang River, and Iltz River meet and is also called the city of water. The colors of the water are all different, so you can see the mysterious color of the water where the rivers meet.
There are many Gothic and Baroque structures. St. Stephen's Cathedral was built in the Baroque style by an Italian architect, and the cathedral itself is a work of art. The pipe organ in the cathedral is the world's second-largest pipe organ. Passau is a very small town where you can finish sightseeing in a day, and you can travel easily without a map.
