Shopping and relaxing holidays at the same time - impossible? It is possible - in Passau

Passau invites you to come for a visit. Here you will find all the good things of life such as the celebration of festivals, tasty food and drinks, shopping facilities and culture events.

The Three Rivers City offers besides numerous sights a scenic townscape with its highly romantic old town and various attractive shops. One can enjoy cheerful hours in a comfortable atmosphere in picturesque alleys, on cosy squares and in appealingly designed precincts. From the historic old town through the pedestrian zone all the way to the "New Centre" the visitor gets everything which is fashionable and trendy. More than 500 shops with friendly staff – from the small one-line shop to the attractive shopping centre with more than 90 shops – are in a short walking distance in the heart of Passau.

Big brands or unique products, shopping centre or tailoring – Passau pleases all wishes and tastes. Quality and service at its best, competent support by well-trained, friendly and mainly multilingual staff is a standard in Passau. It is worth while making a detour to the Höllgasse, the alley of the artists in Passau’s old town: there you can find in beautifully maintained medieval houses studios, art shops, galleries, hand made jewellery and artists live at work.

Highlights like open Sundays, Passau’s weekly market with regional products, the wood market in the Advent, the Christmas market on the Cathedral square or numerous street festivals with changing themes bring a lot of life to the city centre. Furthermore: with ca. 3.000 parking facilities in the heart of the town such as car parks, underground garages and parking lots there is plenty of relaxing time left for shopping and culture. Shopping gets even more comfortable and pleasant with Passau’s parking charge payback system.

Many pubs, cafés, bars, exquisite restaurants and traditional inns invite to wine and dine. Could there be something more delightful than relaxing in a real Bavarian beer garden or in a terrace restaurant  with a breathtaking Danube view after a long shopping day amidst beautiful historic facades?
