Unfortunately we were not able to get inside as there was a mass going on this Sunday morning. But outside, the Cathedral is both massive and spectacular. A must-see while in Reggensburg!

Bavaria is a Baroque-lover's wonderland, and this soaring cathedral is among the finest examples. Be sure to visit the Cathedral Museum, entrance at the stairs at the end of the right aisle.

What more can you say, the Cathedral is beautiful inside and out. Restoration is an ongoing process. When you finish viewing the Cathedral there are plenty of shops and cafes in the immediate vicinity where you can relax or shop for awhile.

The tall and majestic cathedral is flooded with natural light and features frescoes and lots of Baroque stuccowork. The immense organ is said to be the largest in Europe. It was absolutely packed for the Saturday noon organ concert which lasts just half-an-hour..

St. Stephen's is thanks to its size, which allows the magnificent interior to be appreciated, the best or at least one of the best Baroque churches in Europe. It also contains the largest organ in Europe, with almost 18,000 pipes.
