There is so much history associated with this church. Worth a tour guide who knows about the painted over murals and different carvings, not to mention the largest cathedral organ (5 organs connected with cables). For more details and pics visit etbtravelphotography

Neither Baroque architecture nor organ music are favorites of mine. That said, the 17th-century St. Stephen’s Cathedral with its intricate plasterwork, frescoes, and colorful adornments certainly represents the ornate, “birthday cake” style most entrancingly. And Europe’s largest organ, all 17,000 pipes worth gives new meaning...More

Great colours in a unique Italian style church, the most tastefully done baroque church I've seen in Germany.

This is not just Another Beautiful Cathedral; it’s the real deal. Spend some time looking up and try to find the nuances in the designs: the one crying angel, the random hand in a photo holding a scroll.... many fun things to discover. And just...More

There is a concert every day but Sunday. On Sunday, you would need to go to a church service.
