the two main towers a quite different and give the building an astonishingly unsymmetrical appearance. When you enter this is gone and you are in a huge and light flooded church. Do not miss looking at the cloister surrounding the courtyard of the cathedral.

This large catholic church is an oasis of peace, senenity and light. For worship and comtemplation, but also in the field of history of art and architecture. Noteworthy is the large crucifix going all the way back to 1230

Many TA reviews cover the wonderful history of the Dom so I shall not repeat but please look into that. The architecture and the rather stern style both inside and outside has always attracted me. This is a holy place built for durability and functionality...More

The Dom was huge. Into the pillars there are nice pictures encraved from Jesus. Generally it was sober. Nevertheless it is worthwhile visiting.

Lovely tranquil setting and atmosphere. Really a beautiful place to check out and even visit for mass. During Christmas time there is a wonderful vibe around the church due to the Weihnachtsmarkt season.

Nice to have a look inside and escape the noise. Very peaceful place for contemplation, even with all the tourists.
