Not expensive and worth seeing. The church has unique underground rooms. There is a museum which gives a good history of area. It was our stop between Frankfurt and Berlin and it was worth the time and money.

We visited this old cathedral which is a reference point in all Germany since its orgins go back to the 9th or 10th centuries. Merseburg was an important seat during the Middle Ages. The inside of the cathedral is beautiful with balanced arches in the...More

An espetacular place with really a thousand years story that is worth it visiting and listening to the tales of the place! Don't forget to see the Raven couple and listen to their story too!

This is in a quiet area of the town - very atmospheric with lots of nice, old buildings nearby. The church is historic and there are interesting artefacts to see. The adjacent museum is very good with displays relating to various eras.

Well worth a visit if you are in Merseburg. We visited last week and enjoyed looking around the Dom and museum. The museum has a side collection of intresting lighters. Not sure how it was connected with the rest of the museum but was fun.

The church of Merseburg was erected after Emperor Otto triumphed over the raiding Hungarian army in the second half of the 10th century. The building is of early Romanesque style, somewhat changed later - but the main character remains (unlike, for example, Trier). It became...More
