  • Monumental for those of you that are war enthusiasts and wish to gem up on history , this place is fascinating , close by at the airport is Fieldmarshall Goring's stronghold luftwaffe castle with its ...  more »
  • Notable for big which is for a population so small, inside there is some altarpiece to see even though none of the other world, if you're in the area it is worth a visit even if you don't expect much.

  • The Paderborn Cathedral is worth a visit. Here are the relics of Saint Liborius, the patron saint of the stone sufferers. On the ground floor you can the magnificent altar and various Kapellnieschen admire. In the basement there is a crypt containing the relics of the Saints and the tomb of the Bishops of Paderborn. If one wants to learn more about the DOM and the history of the Archdiocese of Paderborn, should you take a guided tour or visit the Cathedral Museum which is right next door.

  • 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.

  • A very impressive structure that everyone should see. "Three-Hare window" remember a visit where to pay

  • The brightness inside is impressive. Worth seeing are also the crypt and especially the cloister.
