The Danube River meets the Inn and Ilz rivers in Passau, about 90 miles east of Munich, Germany. The confluence of the three rivers can be seen in the three colors of water where a riverboat is visible. Passau traces its history back 3,000 years to when Romans fought for its control with tribes from the Alps. A 17th century fire destroyed much of the town and today it features classic baroque architecture including several large, ornate churches and a fort. Photo by Bill Vogrin, The Gazette.
