A guided tour through Veste Oberhaus

Veste Oberhaus can look back on a highly exciting history. Permanently inhabited and used ever since its beginnings in 1219, this ancient castle brings 800 years of history back to life. Its venerable walls have witnessed numerous enemy attacks, held famous prisoners, and, were besieged by camper vans. Discover exciting background information about the origins of Veste Oberhaus: its development from a medieval castle, to a Renaissance palace, and finally a modern fortress. Finish the tour with a visit of St George's chapel and the Linde Battery – a unique place to view the baroque city of Passau and the colourful confluence of the three rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz.

Please note that the tour only includes the outdoor areas of the castle!
