  • We attended an organ concert. Honestly, it's exhausting. But without the organ... Super great. (I like no Orgelmusik...sorry) But the impressive cathedral. You can see is full of barely.

  • This church is one of the most beautiful in Passau. Visited by many tourists and always many shipping events take place.

  • Stephan's Cathedral, Passau you must be seen. The magnificent Cathedral with its two onion towers dominates the great old city. The Baroque building is a cockpit during a visit to Passau.
