It is a pilgrimage church of the of Mariahilf. A beautiful church with a nice passage stair. but our host, working in Passau, was the one who brought us to the church vicinity by car. We had a very nice view of the city and the rivers Inn and Donau. River Ilz in not visible from there.
My husband and I visited in December. We started the day early with plenty of energy to climb the 360 stairs to Mariahilf. We walked from our hotel, across the bridge, and through the Innstadt district to the beginning of the climb. The stairs were relatively easy with groupings of 10-13 stairs in a section. We had to stop several... 更多
Thanks to some TripAdvisors we managed to find the entry to the 'Wallfahrtsstiege '- the covered walkway Pilgrim stairs to the Mariahilf Kloster.

One of the most memorable things you'll do in Passau is climb up the covered pilgrims' steps to the Mariahilf church overlooking the river Inn. You can read all the prayers for help left there as you climb. It's not as spectacular as other sights, but very moving and often empty of tourists.
There was a service underway when we arrived at the location, so we did not go inside...but enjoyed the challenging walk up the hill to this landmark. There are some lovely spots along the way to get pictures back across the Danube to St Stephen's and surrounds. Well worth the effort...the trees provided cool shelter on a warm day.
The church is worth a visit but more unique is the covered walkway going up the steep hillside we could only enter from the top near the church. Plenty of parking in car park above the church and walk a couple hundred meters
