This well-preserved city demonstrates a pride of all the medieval jewels that remain in this city. These imposing churches are things to behold! This one really has a commanding presence at the west end of all the pedestrian streets.

up on the hill, once you climb up the staircase which has wide steps, you will see two Catholic Churches On the left is St. Marien Dom and on the right St. Severi Kirche, both Churches are plain but have character and are worth visiting,

This dominant building is well worth a visit. The interior is in turns bright and glorious and dark and somber. There are beautiful elements, and you can find a moment of peace.

I think you should have been there, just to know how it is, but I don't like churches that much. The dom is more impressive with it's stained glass windows and the font. I also thought the two statues of women that are attached to the wall near the font are also nice. But I thought the fact that the... More

Some amazing architecture and stained glass windows. This is the more elaborate of the two churches, separated by only 10 meters or so! Both are well worth visiting, if only to compare their differences.

This is one of the most impressive cathedrals I have ever seen. It is situated higher and the stairs you have to climb make it look even more imposant.

The whole Domberg area is fascinating to explore, both for its own features and for the views over the town, the Domplatz, and the citadel. Both churches are worth visiting, although if time is limited the Dom has much more of interest. If you're religious or have a strong interest in Christian art then allow longer for your visit. If...

This hill above Erfurt's Domplatz has two churches: the cathedral and St. Severins. Both are Roman Catholic but were built for different purposes, the latter appears to have originally been attached to a convent. The nice part about these churches is that they were spared the destruction in WW II for the most part (some roof damage to the catherdal),... More

The Domberg is unique in its exterior, sitting as it is on a steep but low hill. There is a cathedral with an attached triangular portal, and next to it a large church. The steps leading upward to the plateau narrow from the base to the top and are often used in outdoor theater and concerts. The cathedral and church... More

This cathedral had some beautiful art, especially the paintings on canvasses that curve around the central columns. The doors of the main cathedral are magnificent. It is supposed to be a quiet place, but when there are many tourists present, it can often become crowded and noisy. Try to visit during non-peak hours, maybe first thing in the morning.
