Hubby did sit topside on the deck. He played on the internet and checked on me on and off through the day. As the day wore on I became restless to exercise the knee as it was feeling stiff by now. A warm shower got me going. I dressed for dinner and we went on one of the small decks. We arrived in time to get some parting shots of Passau as we were sailing toward our stop in Melk and Krems on the 5th.
I really liked the pastel beauty of these buildings in the evening sun. We sailed toward a bridge and I realized I would see the fortress after all!
The former fortress was spread out over quite an area on a cliff above the river. Along with the towers and walls the complex is around 2300 feet in length. There are parts of the fortress from the river's edge up to the 344 foot hilltop. The fortress was built by the first prince bishop of Passau. It is now a museum, restaurant, youth hostel and theater. So it has a new life.
Chaba is the cocktail chef so the cocktail and dinner time could be quite fun. Add in Nebo and the evenings were very delightful. This evening the view through the lounge windows were beautiful as the sun set behind the Danube Valley hills. The perfect ending for a restful day.....
