Germany is not lacking in beautiful churches both inside and outside. I was respectful and did not take photos of the interior as is requested on the board when you enter. All the beauty remains in my mind.

Very interesting 11-14th Century church with much to see inside. Be sure to visit the garden on the grounds. Beautiful trees and flowers and a quiet place to contemplate.

This building is so unique you could spend days here. It has different level and looks depending on the sun and where you stand. Excellent - Must See!

Like any other really big and impressive catholic church. Very fancy with lots of pictures on the walls and sacrifice on the altar etc etc. Worth seeing if you are close by.

I don't visit cathedrals for the sake of saying that I've been there, done that. I am not religious but will always take a look and stay if I find something interesting or beautiful. This cathedral was stunning from the moment I stepped through the doors, and when I found the 'virgin Mary' chapel I was pretty much list for... More

This church was beautiful, inside and out. Walk around and look at pictures of the pre-war and post war pictures. Very moving. They did a wonderful rebuild and I enjoyed this cathedral very much.
