Our Viking cruise ship, Odin, docked right in the heart of the old city and we started our tour with our guide from there. Passau was day 4 of our cruise and turned out to be one of 3 most favorite stops (along with Regensberg...More

The cathedral is a unique and beautiful church and well worth a visit, but the much hyped world's "largest organ" concert is dramatically over-rated. The day we attended (along with about 2000+ other attendees) to the standing-room only noon concert, the music selection was unusual,...More

My wife and I arrived at Passau recently during our river cruise on the Danube. To the best of my humble opinion, the magnificent St. Stephen's Cathedral is a real GEM in the crown of the lovely town of Passau. This is a baroque cathedral...More

So you’re in Passau on tour and of course the guide says ,”you have to to the cathedral.” Go at noon for the concert featuring the largest organ in the world. It is impressive even if you’re not a big fan of organ music.

Make sure you attend this 35 minute concert in the church. The interior is vast with many statues and ceiling paintings. One of the largest organs in Europe.

This cathedral has baroque scuptured images throughout. Interior is immense, as is the organ with over 1800 pipes. A photographers delight. Unfortunately we were not able to stay for one of the daily concerts.

Passau is a beautiful town. In the center is the cathedral. It is truly beautiful with frescoes, stained glass and my favorite: self sculptures of the stone masons holding up key parts of the sanctuary. Definitely a must see!!!!

We finished the 2 hour walking tour (from the Uniworld River Cruise) of Passau at the St. Stephens Cathredral. The 30 minute recital was Powerful, Splendid, Captivating, moving (not enough words to accurately describe). The Cathedral itself (all 300 meters in length) is a true...More

There is a concert every day but Sunday. On Sunday, you would need to go to a church service.

I would think that it would be as we were moored at the furthest end of the bank and it only took us 20 minutes to walk back.

I think you can get tickets either online, or the day before. I am not sure they perform every day, again you might need to check online.
