We enjoyed a leisurely morning of sailing, again enjoying the vistas around us as we sailed towards Passau. Passau is known as the city of three rivers as it is the location where the Rivers Inn, Ilz and Danube come together.
Our arrival in Passau was very picturesque with its colorful buildings lining the banks of the Danube. As it was early afternoon we had the option of a walking tour of Passau or a brewery tour as part of the theme cruise to the Rieder Brewery. Since the Beer theme cruise is only offered twice a year I opted for the brewery tour and will have to visit the city of Passau on another journey. Again on this tour we were accompanied by the Beerpope who served as our translator as the entire tour was in German.
After the tour we went for a tasting and they began bringing out plates of sausages and baskets of pretzels….wow, what a snack! After the tour it was back to the ship to finish packing as it was our last night on the ship…..already?
We enjoyed a wonderful farewell dinner and then some dancing in the lounge before calling it a night to get ready to disembark the next morning and on to our next adventure.
