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.

Until someone knocks Dom off the mountain top, he remains the king. The cathedral sits in the most prominent position in Meissen and can be seen from all directions. It sits inside the castle. You cannot miss the prominent feature when you enter Meissen. It...More

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

A very nice gothic cathedral architecture, which is unusual in a country where baroque is so dominant. The black stones make for a surprising contrast next to the white painted castle. Lightening destroyed the west towers in 1413 and left only the east one standing...More

Meissen is a very nice village with several sights to see. The Dom is a landmark on top of the hill. The road up from the village square is not too steep and doable for most walkers. Actually it is a nice walk. You have...More

Gothic building with some interesting spaces. The best is the interior armony and the chapel of the "entrance" (even if it is accessible from the inside...). Nice sculptures in the choir chapel. Look for the combined ticket with the Schloss...
