Passau

The charming city of Passau on the border of Germany and Austria straddles the confluence of three rivers: the Danube, Inn and Ilz. The waterways are celebrated here as the source of wealth, for they brought 'white gold' in the form of salt. Passau was part of the Roman Empire for more than 400 years and later an Episcopal seat in 739 AD, becoming an independent Prince Bishopric for over 600 years. It was not until 1803 that Passau was annexed into Bavaria.

Passau is known today for its historic architecture, university, location at three rivers and as the last train station before Austria. In the heart of the city, the Old Town's Cathedral - St. Stephan's, home to the world's largest cathedral organ sounds - rises dramatically overlooking the city. The setting of the Old Town, constructed by Italian Baroque masters in the 17th century, is filled with soaring towers, picturesque landscapes, enchanting promenades and winding alleyways.

“River vessel was good Food good Locations were good. Days ashore seem to be either too long or to short, no sort of happy medium Train travelling was made arduous due to bad time keeping on German Railways

The Majestic Rhine (Fly and Cruise)
13 Oct 2022
James McNeil
4 stars
“We had a little bit of an issue with BA cancelling our outward flight at short notice but the GRJ managed to get things sorted out. From boarding the boat to us flying back from Amsterdam, the service was great from both the GRJ team and boat crew. God's balance of cruising and choices of excursions.

Jungfrau Express and Rhine Cruise (Basel-Amsterdam)
12 Oct 2022
Mr David Dewdney
4 stars
“We both really enjoyed our first cruise of any type. Our tour guide for the Jungfrau Express part of the trip, Ian Boyle, was the best we have experienced whilst travelling with your company. Organised and adaptable, he provided all the information we required and more; for example, we would have been unlikely to discover the boat tour of Strasbourg which we greatly enjoyed. We enjoyed our hotel in Strasbourg, being pleasingly large and situated near the station. Whilst we found some of the fittings in the hotel in Interlaken a little tired, we enjoyed the experience of eating on the 14th floor with its stunning views. The cruise ship was excellent and we can't speak too highly of the staff. The cabin was excellent and spacious and we enjoyed being able to unpack the suitcase, but being able to visit different places and will go on another river cruise in the future. The only negative was on the last day when we had to get up very early to travel on a coach to Brussels rather than a train from Amsterdam. Whilst we fully understand the problems of obtaining the train tickets, we were first told that this issue was a one-off, but later discovered it had been a problem all summer. Yet, this was not mentioned at all in the information pack received a fortnight before the trip.
