Passau is where three main rivers run together: the Inn, the Ilz, and the Danube. This means that throughout history the town has had a lot of flooding, so it smells quite musty. I sneezed the whole day I was there, but in spite of the fact that I was allergic to the town I really liked it. It was a major religious and educational seat in Bavaria from the Renaissance on, so there are a variety of architectural styles to look at.
I think another reason I enjoyed Passau was because there are five breweries there. I only made it to two, but they were worth the trek.
