Europe is full of fantastic churches and this one is no less spectacular than its large cousin up the way (St. Stephen's cathedral). beautiful altars, this church is smaller and was reportedly for the wealthier patrons in the area. Worth stopping in.

Passau is full of beautiful churches and this is another one, With a dazzling high alter and side alters of great beauty, this church is worth a visit.

A real contrast to St. Stephens due to the difference in classes attending the church. Interior is stark white in direct contrast to the black altar. Only one small stained glass window tucked away in an corner. Interesting stop to see the contrast.

Lots of great photo opportunities with this church either from in front, along side, or from the river.

The arches inside span long distances. The white walls dramatically frame ebony and gold altars. Side altars are artful yet somber. I felt at home in this Catholic Church.
