If you don’t want walk up, you can take elevator, the entrance is on the Meisastrasse. The Dom is quite beautifull and has lovely views over the town and the Elbe.

The entrance is a small lateral door, you have to knock if it is closed. Inside with this layout you can go around the church and admire it. It is a good place to stay.

The cathedral is dramatically situated above the Elbe. It is best approached on foor, but there is a lift! The building is mostly early gothic, but is rather Barr internally. There are some small exhibitions.

Until someone knocks Dom off the mountain top, he remains the king. The cathedral sits in the most prominent position in Meissen and can be seen from all directions. It sits inside the castle. You cannot miss the prominent feature when you enter Meissen. It...More

The meissner dom is a beautiful example of how people in the middle ages good make effort in name of their beliefs. Compared to the relatively small town it is amazing to see what people could build back then
