A Warm Welcome to our International Visitors!

 

The Haus am Strom is situated in the nature reserve Donauleiten in the Danube valley, 20 kilometers east of Passau on the border to Austria. You can reach us by car, by bicycle, or by boat from Passau.

 

The Haus am Strom derives its name from the double meaning of Strom which means both, stream and electricity. Thus, it is the perfect name for a location that celebrates the natural habitat of the Danube valley as well as an interesting hydro-electric power plant that turns the stream of water into electricity.
