Passau Hostel

Hostel Passau

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

A castle, a museum and a spectacular view. Plus, of course: culture at its best! That's what to expect at Passau Cultural Hostel in the Veste Oberhaus castle. High above the city, you will reside inside time-honoured walls. Marvel at the stars through the telescopes at the observatory and delve deep into Passau's history. Be tempted to a steam boat tour, an outing to the Bavarian Forest or an idle afternoon in the sun at the Ilzstausee barrier lake - and, of course, a leisurely walk through Rosengasse, Theresienstrasse et cetera. A must for all those who like it peaceful, yet lively. Welcome to Passau Youth Hostel!
