We had the most wonderful guide, Christopher, today who took us on a walk through Passau and up to a pilgrimage church, Mariahilf (Mary, help us!) for views over the city. Along the way he discussed education, economics, architecture (85% of the town burnt down in 1662 so most buildings are ~350 years old) and a touch of politics. He was incredibly informative with a cheeky sense of humor that matched his mixed background (half German/ half English). We saw the stunning Passau cathedral and the three rivers that made Passau an important trading post for hundreds of years.

Along the way, I also learned that university education is free for all in Germany... ie not just for Germans, but for everyone!  Christopher mentioned that he had a friend from Canada who decided to transfer for the remainder of her coursework after spending a semester in Passau. Not only that, but 80% of courses are given in English in Passau.... seems I have a college plan for my kids!!
