The Location – At the Beautiful Blue Danube
The Hotel Residenz is situated in the heart of Passau’s Old Town and directly below the Cathedral on the Danube’s waterfront. This makes it an ideal starting point to explore the beauty and secrets of Passau.
The comfortably shady patio in front of the hotel offers a great view of the waterways leading to the Black Sea and the North Sea, and allows guests to take a look at the cruise ship before it departs. Behind the hotel you will find Höllgasse, Passau’s best-known Old Town alley with artists’ studios and galleries, small fashion and jewelry boutiques, and the well-known glass museum.
You will be able to explore the unrivaled flair of the three-river city in its picturesque Old Town alleys and the enchanted nooks and crannies and hidden passages – all right by the hotel.
The famous Cathedral (with the world's largest Cathedral organ), the city hall with the large carillon and impressive state rooms, or the Residenzplatz – one of the most beautiful Baroque plazas north of the Alps where you can fully enjoy Passau’s Italian atmosphere – are all just about 100 meters (328 feet) from the hotel.
