Fortress Veste Oberhaus, Museum

The Fortress Veste Oberhaus was built in 1219 by Passau's Prince-Bishops in order to control commerce across the rivers.

In the 19th century during the Napoleonic Wars the castle was one of the strongholds against the Austrians. Due to several changes over the centuries today's castle consists of gothic, renaissance and baroque parts. Inside the fortress you will find outstanding exhibitions documenting the history and art history of Passau and its surroundings.
