Excellent view from the tower

It is worthwhile climbing up the tower as it offers a great view over Konstanz and the lake - be aware that the staircase is pretty narrow.

You can read up about the Münster in all the guidebooks, but here are three perspectives of it you should not miss! - Firstly, the tower: when entering the Münster, turn right and get a ticket to go up to the platform, from which you have wonderful views of the old centre of Konstanz, and of the island of Reichenau...

The church is beautiful! I was lucky enough to be around over Easter and experience a truly wonderful ceremony. As a non-catholic, non-German speaker I had a wonderful watching the traditional services that took place over Easter. If you are around on a Christian holiday - or any Sunday in fact it's a great experience. Climbing to the top of... More

We enjoyed the muenster and it's beautiful stained glass, and organ, but we were awed by the tower and the views. It was well worth the climb. I get why these churches were constructed this way. Awesome.

The Cathedral of Constance (Konstanz) is a must see attraction when visiting the town. I grew up not far from Constance but it has taken me over 50 years to actually enter the Cathedral for the first time. The cathedral is not huge, but has beautifully preserved/restored stained glass windows and frescos in the main part of the building and... More

I had a great feeling since while walking towards the cathedral. A gothic cathedral that caught our attention since from a block away. Once entering there I found that calm atmosphere I was longing for since about a couple of weeks. It gave me the impression as if I had traveled back in time. That labyrinth of chapels behind and...

This cathedral is a wonderful example of medieval construction. For Americans visiting Europe, this is something that needs to be visited. The alter and stained glass are awesome.

An excellent opportunity for people interested in the history of sacral events in Konstanz, the council and its significance in the middle ages. The building ( Muenster) itself is a labyrinth of small chapels arranged around, behind and under the main nave and there is a cloister with painted ceilings (frescos). There are also frescos in some of the chapels... More

This is a wonderful building that cannot be appreciated from external view only. Entry to this historic building is free,(donations welcome), with a 2 euro charge for climbing the tower; we did not have time to do so on this occasion. The stained glass windows and architecture are wonderful, and on the day we visited parts of the building were... More

This was the best part of our visit in Konstance. The church is average in its design and architecture, but the bell tower was worth the climb. It was only two euros and provided an amazing view. Def spend a half hour climbing the tower and taking in the view, great value for the cost.
