  • The Cathedral is very classic, which abounds in Germany. While visiting incessantly was dogged by a sense of déjà vu. Pleasant moments: you can climb to the upper tier and explore the interiors from a new angle.

  • Who has risen one once on the mountain, you should look at the Cathedral. An imposing and architecturally beautiful building. To right time there is also music and then you can enjoy the Cathedral not only with the eyes but with the ears, too.
