Visited Trier and the Dom in mid June; amazing wood inlay and dome! We were in town to enjoy an organ concert on a Tuesday evening--amazing and inspiring performances suited the reverant setting.

Beautifull in its simplicy of architecture. Rich in the art as for instance the beautifull organ and rich in stone-cut images of beauty and elegance.
