Back on May 8th I traveled together with three Czech girls to the eastern Bavarian city of Passau. It was one of the last major Bavarian cities that I had yet to visit. In our brief time there we strolled on the old town's cobblestone lanes and past its Baroque architecture. There aren't really any worthwhile tales to pass along, but here are some photographs from the day. The last of the following images offers a glimpse inside the St. Stephan's Cathedral.

Passau is known as the Three Rivers City because of it location at the confluence of three rivers, the Danube, Inn, and Ilz. The old town rests on a peninsula formed by the Danube on one side and the Inn on the other. In order to get a better look of this nearly water-surrounded city, we hiked up to the Veste Oberhaus, an aged fortress perched over the city on the banks of the Inn and Ilz Rivers.

The next post on a trip I took through central Germany should offer a bit more content compared to this one.
