St. Stephen’s Cathderal and Cathedral Organ
A must-see for any visitor to Passau is the St. Stephen’s Cathderal, an impressive baroque church which is also home to the largest organ of any Catholic church in the world. Built on the highest point of the peninsula between the Danube and the Inn, it counts among the largest and most important baroque churches in Germany. It has been long established as the bishopric and main church of the Passau diocese. The organ enchants visitors between May and October with regular concerts, its imposing acoustics amplifying some 17,974 pipes and 233 registers. The baroque interior includes five ornately decorated organ works and pipes which rise to eleven metres in height.
