Attraction details
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Being there not that much to do in Paderborn we had the Cathedral at the top of our list. Its very large and very impressive. There are guides available in English which will help you understand what you're seeing. The Cathedral itself was extensively rebuilt after we bombed it in WW2 and there is a still a fragment of that bomb in the grounds.

This place is steeped in history. I sang in the choir as a child here, came on school trips and spent many afternoons with friends coming here at the weekends. After growing up and leaving Germany I came to show my children where i grew up; it was lovely to visit the Dom once again. The grounds are superb and the architecture is incredible.
This is a great way to spend an afternoon after browsing the shops; grab a snack and sit on the walls behind the Dom watch the ducks swimming in the river which runs underneath the cathedral.

Absolutely beautiful. Considering it burnt down it has been restored magnificently. Would go again to see it. The history of this Cathedral is so interesting. It is based in the centre of the town, which means you are in reach of other churches, shops, cafes and restaurants.
