There is a place for everyone at the Scharfrichterhaus. Because there is an extraordinary combination: art, culture and enjoyment. And all of this in a very unique ambience: right in the middle of the historical centre of Passau, directly at the beautiful blue danube.
The permanent cabaret stage is the perfect platform for national and international artists to present cabaret, music and literature to the native, but also to the muchtravelled audience.
Besides well known cabaret stars like Sigi Zimmerschied, the Scharfrichterhaus provides its stage to newcomers too. The annual award of the Scharfrichterbeil offers suprising new artists an opportunity to show off their talent in front of a top class jury. A lot of famous stars like Hape Kerkeling, Urban Priol or Luise Kinseher won the award before.
In addition to the cabaret there is a restaurant in the Scharfrichterhaus which spoils your palate with delicious bavarian-austrian specialties.
