The lovely pretty town Passau was our Port of sailing for a cruise on the Danube, so a City tour was our first “task”. During our tour of Passus’ streets and alleys we hit this lovely alley named “Artists Alley”. Many workshops and studios, welcoming...More

Not sure what the draw is here. There are only a couple of shops here. Very modern, avant garde. Maybe crazy colors and flags strung between the buildings give it some sort of artist alley flair?

I live here. Its nice! Especially in the summertime worth to visit. Please make sure that the local residents can still cross the street, when you are here for sightseeing.

Worth walking through but don’t expect to be inundated with artists plying their wares. Only a couple of shops in this alley, however they are still great to visit. Keep walking around this area and you will come across other artists selling their craft, so...More

We wondered this section of Passat on a Sunday so not many stores/ shops were open. The things we saw were interesting and the walk was quite lovely. My husband and I really enjoyed this beautiful town.

We were with a mixed group off our Danube Cruise Boat with some better walkers than others but most smiled as they took in the simple difference of the pavement giving them a colourful surprise
