  • Sebastian Kowalke

    Covering an area of ​​65,000 square meters, the mighty Veste Oberhaus is one of the largest castles in Europe - and in excellent condition. Since 1932, the Veste is owned by the city of Passau and since then an exciting museum has been established here. On the one hand, you can dive deep into the history of the city and the castle. There are also changing art exhibitions. In addition, the visit is worth it for the beautiful view of Passau, which you can enjoy from the walls.

    All information about the House of Lords Museum can be found at oberhausmuseum.de.

    Veste Oberhaus is a fortress on the left side of the Danube, opposite the right-sided old town of Passau. Founded in 1219, it was for the most part the castle and residence of the princely bishop of Passau. The far-visible inscription 1499 on the facade shows only one of the years of construction of the ever-expanding castle until 1800.
