“Interesting crypt area”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We thought it was good to see the dedications to those citizens that lost their lives during the Third Reich because of their beliefs. Very moving stories. Altogether an interesting place to visit.

“Worth seeing this impressive church”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you are visiting Xanten, or passing by the city - visit St. Viktor Dom. It's a very large Roman Catholic cathedral, that is very impressive inside. Located just in the middle in the town, by its cental square.

“Like in any Geran town - a good one”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Not really much to say here - just another German cathedral which is beautiful. Sure I've seen better, but this one is among my favorites anyway. What I especially like about German cathedrals is their interiors - really rich, with so many small details etc. Spend a few minutes inside this one - you'll like it.

“Impressive church”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

The "Dom" is an impressive church, with very good pieces of medieval art (mainly altars). The attached museum is worth to be visited, too
