We decided to take the combination boat and bus trip to Linz and back to Passau. There are 3 options if you want to do the round trip. At first we thought that we would do the boat there and back, but the very helpful man at the booking office said that this would not give us time to look around Linz and recommended the boat and bus combination, which we took. The boat ride was delightful, watching the pretty German and Austrian villages which line the Danube, from our viewing point on the top deck. The boat stopped at a few places along the way to let people on and off. The staff on board were very friendly and helpful. One of the perks that came with the trip was free entrance to the Museum of the month in Linz and for this you get another ticket from the boat company when you purchase your original ticket. Be careful when you use your ticket in Linz though, the person in the Lentos museum wanted our boat ticket and not our museum ticket, and this left us without a return bus ticket - although of course we did not realize this at the time. That aside, the boat trip, which leaves the main docks in front of the Rathaus in Passau at 9am each day except Mon, is delightful and well worth taking.
