  • A truly beautiful Cathedral. The colourful window and the color schemes create a contemplative atmosphere. Unfortunately, we could not in the crypt.

  • A beautiful cathedral... the stain glass windows alone are worth visiting. The "3 hares" in the inner graveyard are a unique symbol that fans of architecture will appreciate. The cathedral is impressive on many many levels and the volunteer guides are wonderful people willing to share a house of God. A wonderful visit...
  • Beautiful cathedral, with surprising details in every corner. A real gem, one of the most beautiful old churches in Europe.
  • Amazing and huge cathedral. Definitely worth a visit.
  • It is great!
  • The DOM visit should be mandatory for Paderborn visitors. A guided tour is recommended to get the details of the highlights explained.
