Portrait

Dolce Vita in Lower Bavaria: Welcome to Passau, where art and culture flow through the streets, blending yesterday and today. With our Culture|Youth Hostel, you'll stay in one of Europe's largest castle complexes. Now, let's dive into the lively bustle of the streets and explore a true cultural treasure.
In the heart of the city stands St. Stephen's Cathedral with the world's largest organ. Experience pure history with a visit to the Oberhaus Museum in the Oberhaus Fortress. For contemporary art, head to the Museum of Modern Art. Enjoy the convergence of Passau's three rivers - the Ilz, Danube, and Inn - through cycling, hiking, or by boat. Cool off with some water fun at places like the 'peb' adventure pool.

With our numerous educational programs, from a day in the Middle Ages to a glimpse into the universe, your children can experience and discover it all here.

Perched atop Georgsberg is the over 800-year-old Veste Oberhaus, a protective fortress where the Culture|Youth Hostel Passau resides. From here, you'll have a panoramic view extending to Bohemia and Austria.
Leverage this exceptional ambiance for your workshops: the historic rooms with cross-ribbed vaults will stimulate fresh ideas and narrate tales of times gone by. Germany's longest quality hiking trail, 'the Goldsteig,' spans 660 kilometers from Passau to Marktredwitz. Our hostel is the ideal starting point for your trek.

The team at Culture|Youth Hostel Passau looks forward to welcoming you.

We use images from the Museumsdorf Bayerischer Wald, Schärding Tourism, Passau Tourism (including Hajo Dietz), Stadtfuchs Passau, Oberhaus Museum, Museum of Modern Art, der steinbock, TOPassau, ARD Degeto, and Danube Shipping Wurm and Noé.
