A most beautiful cathedral and despite the fact there was restoration work at the time, most areas were accessible. Didn't tackle the bell tower as we hd only just had lunch. The room tiling is different with the Austrian eagle on.

Built from 1170s.....this romanesque architecture is elaborate and exquisite. The roofs have 230,000 glazed tiles with the southern side having a mosaic double headed eagle. It also hosts the tomb of Frederick III and has an excellent organ system.

A vast building. Free to enter, just pay for tower, guided tours, audio guide etc. They are camera friendly. This sets a very good example to Church of England cathedrals who impose exorbitant entrance charges.

If you go into the Crypt on a tour then you can, yes. It's about €5.50 for an adult.

The tower entrance is 5.50 euros and there was a small queue when I was there. I don't think it is possible or necessary to buy tickets in advance for this part of the Cathedral.
