Included with cruise was a walking tour ending in St Stephens cathedral with an organ recital This is the largest organ in the world with 7700 pipes. The concert was well designed with seats in the middle of the Cathedral.The 30 minute organ concert was rich and memorable.

Beautiful restoration after WWII Read Less

Beautiful cathedral. Crowded in the winter for the organ concert, so I can't imagine during the warmer months when there are even more tours. Get there early.
