The Rathaus in Passau, Germany

Passau is a city in Lower Bavaria, Germany. I was able to visit this city four times already. It is known as the “Three River City because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north.

The image you see here is the Altes Rathaus or Old City Hall of Passau. It has a Baroque architecture. I was not able to go inside this city hall but I saw some of its pictures in travel books. The painting and frescos inside are amazing. I am wondering what kind of basement floor tile is used there. I am quite sure they are durable ones. I had seen some very old ones in the different historical buildings in Europe.

The Altes Rathause dates from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. It’s neo-Gothic tower can be seen from all over town. Passau is also known as the Venice of Bavaria.
