The Mainz Dom is a very impressive building from outside. It takes a while to get the grandeur of the entire building in. The interior is a little sober and muted but magnificent none the less with its lofty ceilings and subtle craftsmanship.

Located just next to the market square, you cannot but notice this huge beautiful Dom. However,Mainz Dom is a must visit only if you were already in Mainz.

The Mainz dome is a pretty good example of medival era Architechture and is a good place to visit nearby. I wouldnt suggest a special trip just to visit it though.

The Dom of Mainz is the symbolic building in Mainz. You should visit if you are in Mainz. Atomosphere is very sublime.You can feel the medieval mood there.

Don't make a special trip just to see the Cathedral however it is easy to get to when visiting the market square. The Gutenburg Museum is about a three minute walk from the Cathedral. If your interest is seeing the Romanesque and Gothic architecture then take it in.

In the middle of the town, so why not! Since I grew up in Mainz, I have gone there quite often. This church is very silent and a very spiritual place! So give it a try!

We went to the back side to see the Romanesque and Gothic styles in architecture. The building is made of red sandstone which makes the nice pink structure from the outside. One of the towers is being renovated. Paintings of the stations of the cross and stained glass windows fill the church.

I didn't spend much time in it, but it's worth visiting if you're in Mainz. Near the city center, easy to access.

This is quite a nice Cathedral to visit if you are visiting Mainz and in the Alt-Stadt area of the city. It is a bit of a contrast to some of the other large cathedrals you might find in France/England or other european countries in so much as the interior architecture is more monolithic in nature - not as fine...

No tower to climb, nicely kept inside, but nothing ornate. The courtyard is lovely, but the museum was closed.
