The Biggest Cathedral Organ in the World

Do you know where to find the biggest Cathedral organ in the whole world? I believed I am lucky to see for the third time this organ. It is located in St. Stephan's Cathedral in Passau, Bavaria, Germany. We visited this city last week. This cathedral is called as Dom St. Stephan in German, is a baroque church built from 1688. I found this cathedral very beautiful especially the carvings, paintings and frescos on its ceiling. It is such and amazing baroque architecture.

Here is an image I took during our visit.
the Passau Cathedral has acquired the largest organ outside of the United States. It is also the largest cathedral organ in the world. The organ currently has 17,774 pipes and 233 registers, all of which can be played with the five-manual general console in the gallery.
