Pleasant little church. Not exactly a lot to do here, but still good for a brief visit while you are in the city.

This was great example of a baroque cathedral that suffered from the binning of WWII and yet shines eight examples of many eras of constructions and reconstruction.

This cathedral is one of the prime examples of romanic (norman style) church architecture. The blend of old with modern is uniquely interesting. For example modern bright stained glass windows as a contrast to the plain white walls. Definitely worth a visit when you are in Wurzburg.

This historical church is very huge and it stands out in the city center. The interior is predominantly white and they are many beautiful statues and carvings inside. Worth a visit if you are in Wurzburg.

It is a beautiful Gothic cathedral located on Domstrasse, across the Main Bridge in the old city surrounded by shops.

We didn't have enough time to see everything in the church but it was very interesting with history. While we were visiting a mens choir started singing - it was beautiful to hear.

Leaving the Rathaus and turning onto Domstrasse, you can't miss this imposing cathedral as the street runs right into the front of it. The massive twin towers and the red and white facade are very different and quite simplistic for a cathedral of this Dom's stature. Simple until you enter the church and then to your surprise, it is quite... More

An interesting place for history and architecture lovers. I am sure you will be stunned by the beauty of it. Architecture was amazing as ever and loved the carvings. Easily accessible place. There are plenty of shops around the place too.

Interesting architecture and has some other nice buildings around it. Quite austere inside. Entry fee and I didn't see much info in English.
