Another beautiful Church, great concert on the pipe organ. I have to admit that the music was lost on me. It was load and very well done, but not my cup of tea. If you like organ music go to this if you are not sure go shopping. The place fills up fast. There are restrooms across the road from... More

Whilst on an Emerald Danube River Cruise we stopped in Passau and saw this beautiful cathedral. I must confess by now I had seen enough churches and cathedrals to last me a lifetime! Well worth a visit if you love this sort of thing!

On our Viking cruise, we've visited a number of Gothic cathedrals. None compares to this one. It's amazing, from the fresco's that cover the ceiling to the world's second largest organ. The main altar statue of St. Stephen being stoned to death is visually capativating. It is truly a place you want to visit more than once because there's so... More

We were fortunate enough on our Viking river cruise to participate in this wonderful experience. To listen to such awe inspiring music on the pipe organ was incredible. Very moving! Well worth a visit.

The inside of this building is like nothing you have ever seen before. It boasts the worlds biggest church organ with over 17000 pipes. It truly is a masterpiece. You will not be disappointed with a visit

Visited this church as part of a Viking River Cruise. The day of our late October visit river levels rose about 2 feet in 5 hours. The captain moved our ship so we wouldn't be stuck on the wrong side of a low bridge. The church art and sculpture is scrumptious. About 1,000 people comfortably were seated in the church... More

We toured this Church in Passau. the church is beautiful inside with huge white columns and gothic in style. It is amazing that they could build this large of a structure without modern technology. You will be impressed. Take the time to just sit and take it all in.

The architecture and décor is over the top. The organ is impressively large and worth a listen. The artwork on the altar is rather strange and worth a look.
