Food in Passau?

My husband will be in Passau, Germany next week for a conference. Any suggestions for worthwhile places to eat/drink in the area? He is unquestionably an omnivore, though in these situations he tends to prefer local favorites rather than upscale international cuisine (only because he has often been disappointed, comparing places like that to some of the extraordinary restaurants we've been to in the past.)

Also, any tips for regional food "souvenirs" that he can bring back to the States?

  1. hi meg,
    we recently moved to passau, additionally I spent some years here being at university, therefore I know some nice places. so you are invited to contact us and we (me and my wife) will be happy to show you arround.
    if you prefer just to get recommendations, here you go:
    1. there is a really nice fish restaurant in the middle of the city, which is called 'Bouillabaisse' - this is my favourite place since several years.
    2. if the weather is nice you should drive a few miles to austria (about 10 minutes) to a beergarden called 'Weinbeißer' - this place is very special because of the excellent few you get there! (traditional kitchen).
    3. another traditional place in the middle of passau is 'Heilig-Geist-Stift-Schenke' - they serve traditional, bavarian food and the ambiance is quite traditional and nice as well.

    just get in touch with me, if you are interested in more locations or have any other questions! anyway, have a save and nice trip to passau - I am sure you'll love it!

    all the best

    1. I also went to University in Passau, and also loved the Bouillabaisse!
