Since mass was being held inside, we were not permitted to go inside. But the view of the exterior was worth the visit.

This Baroque church almost looks like a confection - it's truly beautiful. We were lucky enough to enjoy the organ concert, which was almost like listening to an orchestra. It was something else, and an honor to hear. Get there early for a seat!

After visiting the gold baroque of Melk Abbey, St. Stephens was refreshingly clean and simple, but impressive at the same time.

We came to visit Passau during a Viking River cruise. We had a walking tour and Viking even arranged a private Organ Concert in St Stephen's Cathedral which was quite interesting.

Unbelievable organ concert given daily at noon, but get there early to get a seat in the center. Costs 4 Euros per person, and hundreds attend, but really worth it.
