A beautifully restored baroque cathedral. A huge pipe organ. A huge piece of regional history. All in a charming little city. Be sure and attend the organ concert. Then go to the bar in front of the rathaus for fantastic unfiltered local beer.

Beautiful church near the river, very close to the downtown area and the pedestrian streets. It seems that there are several interesting churches in Passau ... my time in the city was greatly reduced so this was the only one I visited.

Another strikingly beautiful church...so well worth spending 20 or 30 minutes seeing it. Each of the three churches in Passau is so unique and so beautiful in its own way. I'm so glad that we went into St. Michael's.
