The cathedral is one of the great sights of the City of Mainz. I like the cross-vein which you pass on the way to the Cathedral's museum. Tip: A farmers market takes place in front of the Cathedral on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

This was a very frustrating visit because there was no info available on what we were looking at in the church. I googled the general history and architecture but it doesn’t go into detail about the statues, for example. Couldn’t see any leaflets or audio...More

This place in located in the old city side of Mainz, close to some interesting shops and restaurants as well as Marktes area in the old city. You need to see it and it's surrounding!

This old Catholic church is right down town in the walking area of the city. Take the time to walk through it as it is beautiful.

Visited the church on market day . The interior is a bit dark but imposing . A throwback to less ornate but somber cathedrals. Worth a look

Very impressive cathedral which brings out the feeling of stepping right into medieval, dark history. My grandson - thirteen -said he expected Harry Potter to come around the next corner, so he was also pleased that we went to this cathedral. Otherwise churches are not...More

Lovely place with a picturesque backdrop of the Old cathedral. Many restaurants by the dom. Shopping places all around. The Saturday farmers market and wine market is fun to hang out. Right next to the Gutenberg Museum.

This Cathedral is really incredible. It is a great place to wander through and try to imagine how it was built 1000 years ago. The stone work is fabulous. If you are in Mainz this is a must see experience.
