I like this gothic cathedral. It's very spiritual, big but still not huge, placed in an odd spot in the middle of the street. Outside to a far and to a close view too, you will see only the severe grey gothic carved rock, but...More

I happened to have some free time to walk around town and decided to visit the St. Nicholas cathedral. This is worth the stop. Amazing history, a crypt, and relic. Beautiful even outside.

We visited the cathedral for both its interior and the climb up the tower (costs a few CHF). Both were entirely worth the time and, in the case of the climb, the money. Note that it is quite a steep and long winding staircase, so...More

The cathedral sits in the upper part of the city, and is visible from all around. Wonderful architecture, and beautiful inside too. Be sure to climb up the tower, approximately 350 steps up a thin circular staircase to the top and magnificent 360-degree views out...More
