If you living in Germany, it’s highly recommended to take an ICE train. Normally, Tickets are more expensive than the bus but if you book your trip in advance then you can get cheaper ticket.

Danube river

In case, you are planning your one day trip from Munich or other party of Bavaria. The Bayern ticket is the best and cheapest way to travel within Bayern state.


You can also take a Flixbus. It's a cheaper option but takes more time than train.

River Cruising:

There’s also a possibility to have a ferry ride in Danube river and explore different cities along the Danube River. Check out Viking River Cruise and explore Passau during your Cruise trip of Danube but obviously, it’s the most expensive option to reach to the city.
