St. Stephen's Cathedral is a masterpiece of Italian baroque architecture, boasting a stunning facade adorned with intricate statues and frescoes. The cathedral's interior is equally awe-inspiring, with its golden organ, one of the largest in the world and a richly decorated sanctuary. Don't miss the opportunity to climb the cathedral's tower for panoramic views of Passau and the confluence of the three rivers.
