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...

An immense and dark cathedral to explore! Some fascinating nooks and crannies with religious art and a very interesting and graphic pieta. But the real treat is getting on a tour (only in German but I didn't mind) up the towers! They were added in...More

Ich war etwas über diesen Beitrag erstaunt, der sich über die 4 € Eintritt enerviert hat. Der Meissener Dom ist ein einzigartiges Bauwerk mit musealem Charakter, dessen Einrichtung und Unterhalt sicher einiges kostet. Dass man dann von Touristen einen - m.E. sehr bescheidenen Obulus - verlangt, ist nur folgerichtig. Und im Vergleich zu anderen Kunst- und Kulturstätten sind die 4 € geradezu ein Schleuderpreis. Auch das Doppelte wäre für diesen einzigartigen Raum- und Geschichtsgenuss absoulut angemessen. Muss ein Eintritt gratis sein, nur weil es sich um eine Kirche handelt? Naja ...
