With amazing concerts. Not to be missed. Period. You can pay 7 euros to stroll all over. Or 2 euros to hear the mind blowing organ at night for a concert.

Worth a visit just because of the magnificent organ with its 5068 pipes. Even Mozart has playes here! Windows are impressive as well.

This is a beautiful Cathedral, in the center of the old town. On Tuesdays the is a free organ concert. The floor of the church is mainly tombs. The interior architecture and the ceiling are especially beautiful.

I leave it up to every individual what religion to follow. This is also a calm place welcoming everyone. Open to public and especially nice in between services. The floor is covered for a large part with big black limestone. Probably graves of important people...More

Entering the church is €2.50 a person, which you can pay at the desk at the entrance. You won't have to pay extra to see the concert.
