Stunning Cathedral

This church is beyond beautiful. It is not to be missed. Christmas is a special time to visit with the Christmas trees and advent wreath adorning the halls.

This cathedral is magnificent. I think what sets it apart is its brightness thanks to the white stone walls and decoration. This allows you to appreciate the sheer mastery behind the figures and structures as you gaze in awe. Every where you look the is a different work with no two the same. Amazing and worth a look even if... More

This was one of the most memorable days of our trip to Hungary, Austria, and Germany. The church is beautiful, but the organ music was transcendent.

This cathedral was the highlight of our brief walking tour of Passau. After walking through the streets of old town, the cathedral showcasing so much interesting art. The highlight for sure is the organ, the largest in Europe. The courtyard on the side of the church is also quite interesting for those who like seeing history through the gravestones.

After a few cities in Europe yo can quickly start to feel that you don't want to see another church. So, best to know what to look for. This church has an enormous organ that is worth photographing.

The history inside will leave you mesmerised. The artwork is phenominal and the pipes on the organ have to be seen. All you do is keep looking up.

A really beautiful cathedral, topped off with a massive organ (I understand the biggest in Europe), the biggest I have seen (although thinking about it that's not much of a competition). Stunning art work and glass, couldn't stay too long as a service was imminent, as was a drink at the nearby Christmas Market.

The cathedral is well maintained and the inside is a pleasant surprise. Cathedral is highly impressive. If you get the chance to attend the organ concert, do it...well worth the time. A must in Passau.
