During the morning info-walk on Day 10 of our river cruise, we saw a wonderful array of large colourful love heart collages strung high above the cobblestone streets in the city centre of Passau.
I have posted some in this blog. But this is really only a smallish sample of them. They added such a cheerful quality to this already picturesque little township. I’m not sure why they were there in the early Spring of this year or even if they are still there. Although I do doubt they would have survived the devastation caused by all of the rain and flooding that occurred just one short month later. If anyone does happen to know the reason behind them I’d really love to hear from you.
I’ve also added a link to a Youtube video on Passau at the top of this blog and I pasted again here for anyone who would like to view it. Just click on the video to watch it.

What a romantic place, Michelle. Love all these heart banners. 🙂
Yes very bright and eye catching. Still not sure how they came to be there though.
What an amazing thing to see! So unique and beautiful! 🙂
Yes they were different. I’d love to know who organised them and why they were there. They really did give little Passau a young feel. Thanks for commenting on my post.
so totally wonderful … I can imagine walking underneath all those colourful hearts, they do add a touch of youth and life to the scene!
It was a lovely little display. I really enjoyed them.
Yes very cheerful and gay…..and a great little talking point.
perhaps was it part of an art installation?
Yes I was thinking the love heart banners might have been a project completed by some of the art students at the university but I’m not sure. Quite bright and colourful though. They gave a youngish overtone to the beautiful historic little township. I really liked them.
they look great from the pictures 🙂
