“WOW! An incredible medieval wonder!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Beautiful statues, gorgeous stained glass windows, impressive vaulted ceilings; a very nice service, too, for those who actually go there for a Catholic mass

“Nice cathedral”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Definitely worth a look. Beautiful stained glass windows. We were lucky enough to hear the organist practicing for a concert. Lovely streets and shopping area nearby.

“A gem of a cathedral in a gem of a town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Don't miss it. Every site is within walking distance, the town is clean, ecologically friendly, and outstandingly quiet. There are numerous pedestrian areas, accessed only by silent trams.the cathedral plaza is coquette and extremely pleasant. The cathedral is not overwhelming but human. There are many small,nice stores in the Altstadt ,reasonable prices certainly not a rip off.

“Stunning stained glasses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

I'm not particulary into churches and cathedrals, but even I thought this cathedral was good. The best part is that it's free entry and the stained glasses are magnifiscent. Go when it's sunny. Sunlight shineing through the glass lights up the cathedral in a way that words won't do justice. I only went inside without any exploring inside, but I was satisfied.
