Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dating from the 13th century, the Dom was badly damaged during the Second World War but has been fully restored. It features an attractive screen in the choir as well as a splendid altar. Some of the windows are of interest.

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.

An impressive cathedral which has been beautifully restored after being damaged in the 2nd world war. Don't forget the outside too, which is as interesting as the interior. Attached is the Stifts museum, which contains some fine relics. I don't know if it's permanent, but when we visited there was a really moving exhibition on the fate of Xanten's Jews. One tip - if you don't read German, make sure you pick up an information sheet at the cathedral entrance to make the most of your visit.

The dome has a great history but once you see the damage that was done during the last war. It’s even more impressive to see it in this condition. The arts and crafts in the church are fantastic in their details.

Nice church built on the site where the remains were found of supposedly a Roman legionaire named Viktor who refused to worship Roman gods anymore and was excecuted for that. The area where the church was built was originally the Roman cemetry that lay outside Colonia Ulpia Trajana. Viktor was made Saint-Viktor and later people wanted to be burried "ad sanctos" (with the saints) which became the origin of the name Xanten. The church has some very fine wood carving panels and in the cellar are the remains of the Saints and victims of nazi terror in WW2
