Tips

  • Martin Donat

    Here at the "top of town" Ilz and Inn flow into the Danube. The view is exhilarating and it is interesting to see how the differently shimmering water of the three rivers melts into a new color. To the northwest you have a great view of the Luitpold suspension bridge and the majestic Veste Oberhaus. If you have time, a detour is worthwhile, because the view from up there to the baroque old town is simply overwhelming.

    At the top of the peninsula - the so-called Ortspitze - lead both the Inn and the Ilz in the Danube. The different colors (Inn: green, Ilz: black, Danube: blue) remain visible for some time and form a magnificent play of colors.

    Passau is a city near the border to Austria, where the Danube - Ilz - Inn meet, which is why it is also called the three river city.
    In addition to numerous cultural and historical hotspots, numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes are on offer to visitors.
    Passau is an absolute highlight where you should plan at least 2-3 days!

    Who once was there to the top in Passau, then it was really in Passau. You can sit there on the bench at the top of the village.

    The confluence of the Inn and Danube takes place at the top of the village.
    It used to be an oval island, which was filled in with rubble, especially with the old city wall!

    story
    The top of the village was first an oval island. Behind the Lukas Kern orphanage, a watercourse connected the Inn with the Danube. This canal was used for salt transportation. Over the decades, the watercourse silted up and was filled in by the passers-by, especially with the building rubble of the city wall, which had been demolished in 1854. So a promontory between the rivers, the village peak.
    However, this alluvium was outside the measured boundary of the city of Passau in 1826 on the territory of the municipality Grubweg in the district of Passau. It was leased in 1891 by the city of Passau. The city continued to pile up the original 25-acre gravel site at the confluence of the Inn and Danube. The beautification club planted after 1903 the resulting 6,410 square meter headland with poplars and some pastures. The then-planted poplars were a mixed population of silver poplar, black poplar, dachshund poplar, balsam poplar and birch poplar. Some old trees could be from the time of this first planting.
    1922 was the top of the village as a location for a war memorial in conversation. This was then built on the cathedral facade.
    On April 20, 1933, the birthday of Adolf Hitler, the new mayor Max Moosbauer had a Hitler oak planted at the confluence of the Danube and Inn. But it was already in the first year, and also a replanting existed only a few years.
    On October 23, 1952, the municipal council of Grubweg made the decision to leave the top of the town of Passau. After protracted negotiations, the town center was incorporated into the city of Passau with effect from 1 January 1956 and has since belonged to the district of "Passau". After Grubweg in the course of the territorial reform in 1972, however, even came to the city of Passau, the Ortspitze is administratively to Grubweg assign today.
    In the year 1980 the city of Passau rejected the poplar group at the top of the village as a natural monument. In the trees from three to almost five meters in circumference are mainly black poplars, pyramidal poplars and bastard poplars, also Zitter poplars are used.
