Since we’re about to leave Passau, it’s time for a round-up of some of our favorite places!
For a small town, there are a lot of great places for kids to play. Here are some of our favorite playgrounds, all within walking distance of the old city.
Located on the banks of the Ilz River, this amazing playground has something to please children of all ages. One section has a water feature, tree house, swings, and multiple places for climbing.
There is also a more advanced rope climbing area for bigger kids and stronger climbers.
Dotted throughout the park are various skill games, such as a labyrinth game that you move by shifting your body weight, and a basketball game you play while standing on a wobbly platform.
Because of the water feature, this park is especially popular on hot days. People will even swim and stand-up-paddleboard in the river.
This was definitely Hugo’s favorite place to play in Passau. Every few days he’d request the “water pipe park” as he called it.
Even on days when there were a lot of children at the park, it still never felt crowded because there were so many different places to play.
First a quick note: I don’t know if this is the actual name of this park, but it’s on Lindental Street, on the Innstadt side of the river.
This little park is tucked away on a quiet street in Innstadt and is full of fun things to explore. There’s the big fort in the back which looks like something from the pioneer days, swings, a sandbox, a teeter totter, swings, and an area that looks like a horse barn that you can’t see in this picture. This park tended to be very quiet with not a lot of other kids around.
This is probably one of the most popular parks around the old city area because of its central location.
There are slides, a play house, and lots of places to climb.
We usually just called this park “The Point” because it’s at the end of the peninsula between the Inn and Danube rivers.
Notice the people sitting on the bench? The river tour boats dock very close to this park, so there are often a lot of people here. It’s one of the only places that affords a view of all three rivers joining.
In addition to the play structure above, there are also swings, another slide, and a zip line.
