Situated in a nice, peaceful town in the Black Forest. The cathedral is beautiful inside, all white and peaceful, with prayer rooms to the side. It is free to enter, but it is requested that you respect the silence of the church, which everyone did while I was there. There are many areas to explore inside the cathedral. Candles and... More

Stopping in Sankt Blasien turned out to be a real surprise There was a small market in front of the DOM The building on the outside showed nothing of what is inside White, clean, majestic and in some ways a bit overwhelming

The building is very impressive, and the white marble give a very positive impression, contrasting with the always dark ambiance of other cathedrals.

Stunning church with a massive round domed roof, just slightly wider than St Pauls. It has been beautifully restored and has an amazing tranquil atmosphere with light streaming in through the windows. Well worth a visit

Dull and gloomy from the outside my wife looked in and came out telling me to prepare for a shock. It is a shame to spoil the surprise but other reviewers have given it away. Think Zara's wedding on a grand scale, i.e. the iside is all dazzling white (Including seating etc) apart from the ceiling painting in the huge... More

Surpring to find such an impressive and imposing building in a small town tucked away in the Black Forest. The original Abbey was destroyed by fire in the late 18th Century and the Domed building which now stands here was rebuilt in the Baroque style. Worth a visit. Free entry. Can't miss it, right in the centre of town, riverside... More

As someone has already written, you simply would not expect to find a Basilica having such dimensions in a town over the mounain. If from the outside of the cathedral you get speechless, once you go inside you get breathless. It is simply marvellous, so white and with huge columns white as well. If you go by car, you can...

The dome is breathtaking ! We have seen St. Peter in the Vatikan & the duomo in Florence & we must say that this one is worth visiting as well. It's very bright inside as the light is flowing through the big windows and reflects inside on the all white (eithe painted white or white stone) walls/ceilings.
