While at the catedral, the bell ringers were practicing, which was very interesting. The beauty is awesome.

I arrived in Xanten after the Cathedral closed but it was still exciting to walk around it and see all the detail on the outside. From the crucifixion scene next to the entrance to all the other sculpture groups in the walls themselves or nearby. Also the Statue of St Viktor on the opposite side from the entrance. The architecture is beautiful and I just sat down and looked at that before exploring further. The detail on the 3 altars are also something that deserves attention. In the crypt they have a memorial to the victims of the WWII camps. Worthwhile to travel to Xanten to see this

A must see if you are in the area. Steeped in history up to the present day. Be sure to view at day and night.

Beautiful inside and out, but especially inside. Exquisite stonework and plenty of intricate artwork, including some extraordinary wood panels. Full of little curiosities, like the image in marble of a friar from the back.
