Go see its Astromical Clock
Jul 2020
Large church - not as exciting as Cologne Cathedral or St. Lamberti Church which is just around the corner.
But the church with its Astronomical clock is definitely worth a visit

A little dull (sorry)
Aug 2020
This impressive cathedral is almost 800 years old and contains quite a few beautiful details (in particular the astronomic clock).

BUT - having seen so many great churches around the world, St. Paulus Dom doesn’t stand out. It’s worth a short visit, all right, but don’t stay too long: It’s kind of gloomy, sorry to say.

Go find the clock!
Feb 2020
Decent cathedral, but the must-see highlight is the daily clockwork-parade with the three kings .much reminiscent of the one in Prague. However, do note that unlike in Prague, this clock is inside the building... quite easy to miss when you're in a harry to find it on time... we only just made it!

Münster Cathedral is one of those churches that is both overwhelming and soothing. Sit down in the cavernous space and take in the heritage atmosphere. For this church, however built in the 13th century, is already the third "edition" of the most important Catholic church in Münster. The first church on this spot was built in the 9th century. Münster Cathedral is one of the most important buildings of the historic center of Münster. Entrance is free and the place isn't overrun by tourist groups, surely not in January.

One of Muenster's Symbols
Aug 2019
Muenster Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church, dedicated to St Paul. Among the most significant buildings in the city is one of its symbols and its tallest tower dominates the view of the central area.

Interesting Roman Catholic cathedral
Dec 2019
This is a historic cathedral, which has been restored following extensive damage during WWII. The exterior is being cleaned. There is a helpful sheet (available in German, English and Dutch) to guide you round. The astronomical clock is fascinating.

Well worth a visit

Been to a lot of churches and monasteries across Europe and this one is well worth a look. Despite the external renovations inside is immaculate and very inspired. The astronomical clock is outstanding and the structure itself very imposing.

My only criticism was the beggars at the door....!!

Interesting For How It Has Been Reconstructed.
Jul 2019
With considerable damage in WW2, it's interesting to see how it has been rebuilt blending the new with the old. The astronomical clock is also interesting. If in Munster, it's worth spending a half hour or so here.
