  • Buildings such as the imposing Mainz Cathedral dominate the landscape of a city extremely. I like the connection of various architectural styles.

  • Unfortunately undergoing restoration outside, inside is open and that mean, majestic, but especially cool because of the time of visit.

  • If you go to Mainz you can't see the Duomo from every corner of the city. Also worth a visit for its history.

  • Good place to be. Very peaceful
  • Very old, dark, somewhat depressing, but wonderful. Take your time strolling around.
  • This cathedral is absolute must! It is really great! We enjoyed it with small kids...You should plan about 60 minutes.
  • Impressive cathedral. We just came after Easter service and it was interesting still seeing all of the smoke lingering in the place.
  • Enjoyable historic site
