Not expensive and worth seeing. The church has unique underground rooms. There is a museum which gives a good history of area. It was our stop between Frankfurt and Berlin and it was worth the time and money.

An espetacular place with really a thousand years story that is worth it visiting and listening to the tales of the place! Don't forget to see the Raven couple and listen to their story too!

This is in a quiet area of the town - very atmospheric with lots of nice, old buildings nearby. The church is historic and there are interesting artefacts to see. The adjacent museum is very good with displays relating to various eras.

Well worth a visit if you are in Merseburg. We visited last week and enjoyed looking around the Dom and museum. The museum has a side collection of intresting lighters. Not sure how it was connected with the rest of the museum but was fun.
