The whole Domberg area is fascinating to explore, both for its own features and for the views over the town, the Domplatz, and the citadel. Both churches are worth visiting, although if time is limited the Dom has much more of interest. If you're religious or have a strong interest in Christian art then allow longer for your visit. If...

This hill above Erfurt's Domplatz has two churches: the cathedral and St. Severins. Both are Roman Catholic but were built for different purposes, the latter appears to have originally been attached to a convent. The nice part about these churches is that they were spared the destruction in WW II for the most part (some roof damage to the catherdal),... More

The Domberg is unique in its exterior, sitting as it is on a steep but low hill. There is a cathedral with an attached triangular portal, and next to it a large church. The steps leading upward to the plateau narrow from the base to the top and are often used in outdoor theater and concerts. The cathedral and church... More

This cathedral had some beautiful art, especially the paintings on canvasses that curve around the central columns. The doors of the main cathedral are magnificent. It is supposed to be a quiet place, but when there are many tourists present, it can often become crowded and noisy. Try to visit during non-peak hours, maybe first thing in the morning.

The cathedrals are very big and beautiful, especially from the outside. They are settled in the nice central location, which in the Christmas time looks magical.

Two churches are billed on a hilltop. Inside they are relatively modest but nevertheless impress by their size. Free admission.

This is such a quiant and beautiful town, shop owners are friendly, the cobble stone streets, shopping, ice cream, aww - just lovely. Yep, the cathedral is old and fantastic. I would visit here again and bring special friends!

The two churches (Cathedral and Severin Church) are impressive monuments to faith and history. Take enough time, to see it "all". Opening hours are sometimes confusing - so take a close look. An absolute must is visiting the big bell, the "Gloriosa". There are several tours every day. An extremely competent and friendly guide told us many details and answered... More

The power of the church and faith is showed by the fantastic and artistic work on wood, stone and iron. There are also some beautiful windows and paintings. The music puts even more atmosphere to it. A truly serene place that let one forget the everyday hassle.
