This is a cathedral devoted to the Virgin Mary, named Our Beloved Woman. It was started in the 900's as a meeting place for pilgrimages, then expanded in numerous stages, and is being restored. It has gone back and forth between denominations, but is now Catholic. There are beautiful stained glass windows. Each of the gated 12 stations are small... More

Its worth to visit the church. It looks very nice. I like to go inside, you feel so calm and not too many people inside.

The Cathedral features Gothic style, paintings, wrought iron gates and sculptures, brick vaulting. The tower is raised in neo-Gothic architectural style. In 1955 Pope Pius XII raised the Cathedral to a papal Basilica Minor. A restoration program of the Cathedral’s interior as well as exterior was started in 1962 and was expected to be completed by 2010.

Amazing history was written here 600 years ago with the Roman Catholic Council of Constance being held back then deciding who should be the pope. The origin of the Church goes back approx 1400 years and the church shows different styles of architecture and the interesting and beautiful thinks of the church can be found in its details. Constance is... More

This should be the highest building in the city and you can see a whole city view from here. I was suprised that there was a tomb on the back in the church and some secret tunnels(cannot walk in now). It is not only a place to see the overview of the city or attend mass. you can also walk... More

Look very very closely in this cathedral. There are four green men / foliate heads and two columns with some very interesting carvings, not the sort you would expect to find inside a cathedral. Known as exhibitionist figures, these will make you smile and maybe lift an eyebrow if you can find them.

The Munster is in the centre of the old town. There is a disabled access at the side of the church thus avoiding lots of steps. Inside it is magnificent, some particularly fine statues of the Madonna. If you are in to Church architecture this is a find.

This is a beautiful church with beautiful and interesting interiors. You can spend a long time inside and learn a lot about history of this place. But even if you are not a history lover I recommend at least to climb to its tower with an amazing view to the lake. And if you are fortunate (like we were) and... More

This is a wonderful church with all eras on show since it suffered virtually no damage in the 20th century. Make sure to go down to the lower church where you can find a 15th century reproduction of the Holy Sepulcure with the most expressive figures: how Mary does smile when she realizes that she is going to be the...
