Very impressive. St. Blasien is undoubtedly the imposing buildings of the former Benedictine abbey with its impressive dome, the so-called "Schwarzwalddom"("Black Forest Dome”).The rotunda shines in white marble, the pews and the organ at the end of the monastic choir forming a contrast in colour.

Nah. It's a new-build cathedral. How strange. I can only guess it's because the area is still being built up. It was kind of tacky and ostentatious. Even though innit particularly religious, it just felt a bit too much.

Impressive. The interior make up has resulted in an immaculate, almost completely white environment, punctuated by a few paintings on the ceiling.

Worth a visit. A huge, gorgeous white marble dome. Unlike any other I've seen in Germany. Wish we had been there for the Christmas market, but even on an average Monday, it was impressive.

English people tend to expect their churches to be dark - that's because most old churches had their paint and plaster removed during the reformation. The reformation never happened in Baden, and this is a stunning light filled interior with a magnificent ceiling painting in...More

The little town of Sankt Blasien surprises with the extraordinary Dom. Impressive from the outside, the interior is a glorious confection of white architecture. There is also a splendid organ which is often central to many of the excellent musical events that take place here.

The Dom of St. Blasien is impressive from the outside, but quite unexpected from the inside. The outside is beautiful, but still quite calm, but on the inside it's all white and very beautiful. Good for a stop. The village of St. Blasien is not...More
