If you do one thing in Meissen, you should walk up the hill to the Cathedral within the castle complex. Entry costs €4.50 for an adult, which is a tad steep, but the building is one of the most perfect examples of pure gothic architecture...More

The entrance is a small lateral door, you have to knock if it is closed. Inside with this layout you can go around the church and admire it. It is a good place to stay.

The cathedral is dramatically situated above the Elbe. It is best approached on foor, but there is a lift! The building is mostly early gothic, but is rather Barr internally. There are some small exhibitions.

The meissner dom is a beautiful example of how people in the middle ages good make effort in name of their beliefs. Compared to the relatively small town it is amazing to see what people could build back then

I visited the Dom a number of times. Recenty, there seems to be another room open to the public. The entry fee is €4. Recommend to climb the towers which is only possible at fixed times (check website).

The main church was built between 1260 and 1410 in Gothic style by the Catholic Church. The two steeples weren't added until 1909, despite they are not that old they do look old and very beautiful. Since 1581 due to Protestant Reformation the church became...More

This Gothic cathedral enjoys a beautiful setting at the highest point of Meissen, and the interior space is impressive - you can climb up to galleries to enjoy a bird's eye view of the nave. The sculpture over the west door and the various altarpieces...More
