This large catholic church is an oasis of peace, senenity and light. For worship and comtemplation, but also in the field of history of art and architecture. Noteworthy is the large crucifix going all the way back to 1230

Many TA reviews cover the wonderful history of the Dom so I shall not repeat but please look into that. The architecture and the rather stern style both inside and outside has always attracted me. This is a holy place built for durability and functionality...More

The Dom was huge. Into the pillars there are nice pictures encraved from Jesus. Generally it was sober. Nevertheless it is worthwhile visiting.

Lovely tranquil setting and atmosphere. Really a beautiful place to check out and even visit for mass. During Christmas time there is a wonderful vibe around the church due to the Weihnachtsmarkt season.
