  • Is a great place to relax! Such greatness, such an interesting history of the restoration of the Cathedral after the second world war, and which care about the preservation of the relics, many countries simply need to learn from the Germans to preserve the heritage of the nation. Recommend to visit this holy place at the slightest opportunity.

  • The magnificent organ and the cloister adjacent to the Cathedral, as well as the catacombs are in addition to the building itself, worth a visit. Everything is very well maintained and the DOM is rarely crowded. If, then is Shana, and because the celebrations are worth quite the crowd.

  • The Paderborn Cathedral impressed me again and again. Especially if he is really bright in good weather. In addition to beautiful art and architecture, he is but even that for which it was built: a space invites the to silence and prayer. To learn more, is at the Cathedral leaders in good hands.

  • Amazing and huge cathedral. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wunderschöner Dom und abwechslungsreiche Predigten. Ist natürlich zu Libori am schönsten ;-)
  • I can advise only each time to visit a guide in the Cathedral. It is really very interesting.
