St. Stephan's Cathedral Reviews
Viking provides a unique experience that is well worth the cost. The ship itself is very well maintained and the choice of stops is well thought out. more »
Eines der Gebäude, dass man bei einem Besuch der Passauer Altstadt auf jeden Fall besichtigen sollte. more »One of the buildings that you should definitely visit during a visit to the old town of Passau.
Definite must see. Moderate hike from the docks but worth the effort. Most of the shops and boutiques along the way offer a variety of gifts and food items
The cathedral is beautiful but the outside is under restoration construction so it's difficult to walk around it plus you can't get good photos without having construction vehicles in the pictures. The interior is quite beautiful though.
