On New Year's Eve, there are lots of reasons to visit Passau, the 'town on three rivers' in the far south of Germany. Landestheater Niederbayern, the regional theatre, will be presenting an evening of opera highlights featuring soloists and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Lower Bavaria. The programme will feature music from The Magic Flute by Mozart and Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3. Another highlight for all the family is a New Year's Eve pleasure cruise on the Danube with a gala buffet, live music and dancing.
For visitors to Passau, there are lots of places of interest to discover, such as the medieval Höllgasse alley and the artists' quarter in the old town. And did you know that the town's baroque Cathedral of St. Stephen is home to the world's largest cathedral organ?
