The organ performance was amazing! The price is $4 euros for an adult and children are free. The cathedral is beautifully decorated in Baroque architecture! The cathedral is a must do...even if it's just to pop in and view it.

Besides the confluence of the rivers Danube and Inn, this must be the highlight of why people come to Passau. The dome is massive, yet because of its architecture and white colour feels airy and grand inside. it houses the largest church organ in the world and the sound is fantastic! There are very frequent concerts, an aural immersion not... More

Attend the noon concert--you won't regret it. But a Sunday mass is very moving, if you can't stay for the noon concert.Both events were packed with people from all over.

For 4 euro per adult you must experience the daily noon organ concert here! Not only is the cathedral jaw droppingly gorgeous the organ with 18,000 pipes is largest in the world. A must see in Passau!

Breathtaking Cathedral in Passau. The organ concert tickets are reasonable at 2-4 Euros and general seating. For best sound quality It is recommended that you sit toward in middle near center aisle. The Romanesque style of architecture is astounding and the frescos are beautiful. If in Passau, I highly recommend a visit to this magnificent cathedral. It's awe inspiring beauty... More

I have been here several times but this time I got to enjoy a concert on the magnificent organ, which was absolutely amazing! I was here with my son in the spring and even he wanted to return during this, our most recent trip. He doesn't exactly seem to love churches as a rule. I can't even describe how beautiful... More

This is a wonderful piece of christian architecture and art. you need a second and third view to discover the beautines of this majestic church. And the pipe organ is the largest in the world - I heard. But anyway - check upfront and see if you can get tickets for a concert - MUST DO!

We did a tour of Passau in an hour or two, and the church was the highlight. It's worth a visit. I liked the proportions and the light. Most cathederals are dark because of the stained glass, but St.Stephen's was refershingly visible inside. The problem is that I found it most overfilled with ornate religious figures and the like. The... More
