Hi, I'm getting off a Viking River Cruise in Passau on Dec. 27... does anyone know what is the best way to get to Munich from there? And how much it will cost?

Travel Tips for Passau
Seeing the long, white river cruise boats moored along the quays for a day with their Swiss and Austrian flags makes you want to hop on one there and then and just continue your journey around Europe's waterways :))) Since there is neither time nor money for this (maybe one day), pick a guided tour of Passau instead. On equally slim boats, you get to go on a 40 minute tour (until early November) and see Passau from both the main rivers. This gives good photo opportunities (in good weather...) as well as teaches you things, although our autumnal trip was in German only. In summer, there are two hour cruises to Linz in Austria on offer, and sometimes also short breaks to Vienna.
See www.wurm-koeck.de for timetables. The Danube - I wanted to follow her first to Budapest and then the delta again :)))
The castle and the innercourt of Oberhaus
On my picture you may see the castle of Oberhaus, as it looks from the view-tower. This part of the castle was the living-quater of the prince-bishop in the old times, and it is an interesting museum today.
In the innercourt you will find a lovely garden-cafe today as well.
On the left of my picture the draw-bridge that could be removed in times of danger, so the inhabitants of the castle were safe against invaders who might have come through other gates already, but could not get into the real castle.
The very inviting castle between the little Ilz and the Danube is the nether of the old fortifications. Today unfortunately closed to the public, so you have to enjoy it from the outside, maybe up to the upper one (see next tip).
The Veste Oberhaus
The location of this castle above the city makes it an imposing site from where ever you are in Passau.
Built in 1219 it has played a significant part in the history of city and it worth a visit to see the mish mash of architecture!
The Lookout Tower is a fantastic place to look out over the city and see the three rivers. It is also a great deal at 1 Euro.
By boat from Passau to Würzburg
"Passau to Würzburg by boat"
The famous river Danube brings romantic visions to my mind and for the first time I was able to make this trip and I was really impressed travelling on the Swiss Crystal, a ship which holds about 120 passengers and offered first class services.
My trip started in Zürich to Munich by train and then a coach brought us to Passau where our ship was waiting. We were welcomed on board and and enjoyed our first cocktail on deck with a view of Passau on a bright and sunny day.
We were excited to see this important canal link from the Rhine to the Danube River which was completed 1992. The Main River opened up shipping between the North Sea and Black Sea (2176miles with 66 locks).
The canal connects 10 European countries, including those bordering the North Sea.
Arriving from Munich with a coach, there was just enough time to board the ship and start our journey from Passau. The view from our ship was fantastic you could see the
The castle "Veste Oberhaus" built 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. With changes over the centuries today's castle consists of gothic, renaissance and baroque parts. we did not have time to visit the exhibits documenting history and art history of Passau and it's surroundings but will certainly return.
"Danube, the Inn and the Ilz"
The Bavarian city of Passau, is the meeting-point of three rivers - the Danube, the Inn and the Ilz. As it was a clear day we were able to see the distinctive colours of the these rivers.
