Veste Oberhaus and Unterhaus: The castles at night
You cannot walk up to the castles at night and it would also be quite dangerous. Yet it is great to walk along the Danube and see both castles lighted in the distance. When you are lucky, a cruiseship will pass by and you will also see plenty of cargoships sailing up and down the river .
In front of my picture you see Veste Unterhaus and above Veste Oberhaus, the former castle of the prince-bishop of Passau.
Dress Code: No special dresscode -The city of Passau is used to tourists .

Rathausplatz & City-centre: Take a walk at night
The centre of Passau is beautifully lighted and in case that you pass by Passau on the highway or by train and think about a stop-over - see my picture, everything looks fine for a night-stroll.
Most of the day-tourists are gone at 06.00p.m. and afterwards the city has a special charme.
On my picture : The old townhall with the neogothic tower, Hotel Wilder Mann next to it on the right and you may also see a bit of the new townhall on the right of my picture.
Dress Code: The city of Passau and all the restaurants are used to tourists and do not expect you to dress up formally !
