With the 17974 pipes and their 233 stops, the organ in Passau’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral is considered the largest Catholic church organ in the world. The overall layout of the five organ works, which can be played together from a main playing table, is considered a technical marvel. For visitors from all over the world the “Domorgel” is a “must” when staying in Passau.
Up-to-date information about the cathedral music can always be found on the pages of the diocese of Passau.
