Photo Of The Day: Meeting Of The Waters In Passau

Passau River Cruise

You can see the stark color difference between the Inn River (right, coming from the icy Alps) and Danube (left, coming from Germany’s flatter terrain) rivers when they meet at the tip of Passau. The water gradually blends together down-river near the Austrian border. Jess Moss took this shot on a River Cruise along the Danube. See her whole slideshow at Aol Travel.
