We stumbled across this alley and we loved it. Great place for walking and photos. We didn't buy anything but there are shops here.

We had been on a guided tour of the city of Passau and then later had time to explore on our own. We went back through Artists' Alley so we could have more time looking in the nice shoppes.

As we disembarked from the cruise ship, we went down the Riverwalk and hit the street locally know as Artist’s Alley, lots of small shops hosting both sales and manufacturing of small items. Interesting to stop and watch local artists. Bought some really nice items...More

The cobblestones and alleys are painted yearly to reflect whatever the event that is being held, it will be different each year. We saw the painted cobblestones and the previous year we were told there was brightly coloured umbrellas hung everywhere. This part of town...More

We were on a river cruise and only had Monday in Passau. Along the Artist Alley only one shop was open. Most are closed on that day so plan accordingly.

This is an interesting alley and is fun to visit. The painted cobblestones make it easy to find the alley. Be sure to look on the walls to find the measurements and dates of the floods this area has experienced.

About what you'd expect for something described as Artists' Alley, this cobblestoned street (all of old town Passau) is decorated with painted cobbles which accent all the cute little art shops and cafes in the area. Nice to walk around. Interesting art

Not something I was really interested in, but an unusual path through where the artists lived and worked.

Old cobble stone street with small shops sets the tone for Artists' Alley. We visited in the late evening after everything was closed, but you could still view many works in the windows under illumination. If you are walking about town, this is definitely worth...More
