“not stunning but worthy seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice place, great the stained glasses. but best of all is the square around, so full of life. It is a must over Xmas, at the Weihnachtsmarkt. Lovely.
There also regular concert at the catherdral.
Be aware that it is a fully function church and that is close for visits during the mass

“Average cathedral, nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

While I enjoyed the cathedral, it is an ordinary cathedral of that type. I really enjoyed the farmer's market that was around it the day we visited

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

What can you say about a 800+ year old cathedral? I loved it! The organ is impressive and the exterior has detailed decorations. You can spend hrs observing each of the carvings.

“WOW! An incredible medieval wonder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Beautiful statues, gorgeous stained glass windows, impressive vaulted ceilings; a very nice service, too, for those who actually go there for a Catholic mass

“Nice cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Definitely worth a look. Beautiful stained glass windows. We were lucky enough to hear the organist practicing for a concert. Lovely streets and shopping area nearby.
