Great Church, do the entire tour including the treasury it is a very underrated attraction. The outside of the building has been being cleaned for three or four years and is almost restored to its former beauty. The are on the top of the tower.

Definitely worth seeing. A very Christmas experience that can only be experienced in Europe. Hand made wooden toys, jewellery, ceramic mugs, Xmas decorations, wreaths, and Glowein. The music, nativity scenes, the bustle of families with young and old and dogs added to the atmosphere. Sausages, beeswax candles, soap and wax shapes, chocolate and marzipan, etc. etc. Definitely, worth a special visit. Best in the evening.

The cathedral is being slowly renovated but it is nothing special compared with other cathedrals in Europe.

The Dom is a beautiful building, but it provides a difficult visitor experience. I have been to many cathedrals, but I have never seen one that had almost no lights on inside on a rainy afternoon. It was so dark that it was impossible to see any of the details of the many paintings and wood carvings. Very frustrating. The exterior is lovely, though. Be sure to go when the market is on outside. Wunderbar!
