For most of its history, Passau was an independent Prince-Bishopric state between Bavaria, Austria, and Bohemia (Czech Republic), and as a result, thereof, has spawned a unique cultural blend of its own.Marvel at the St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the largest baroque cathedral North of the Alps and home to the largest organ in all of Europe containing 17,774 pipes and 233 registers. Continue to the former Bishop’s Residence until you reach the wonderful town hall built in the late 14th century on the banks of the river.
