The Gothic church spires seen from a good distance indicated a grand cathedral, but I was disappointed in what I saw. The cathedral's exterior is quite uninspiring from the lack of ornamentation on the main door to the blackened sandstone walls with few outstanding Gothic...More

If you do one thing in Meissen, you should walk up the hill to the Cathedral within the castle complex. Entry costs €4.50 for an adult, which is a tad steep, but the building is one of the most perfect examples of pure gothic architecture...More

The entrance is a small lateral door, you have to knock if it is closed. Inside with this layout you can go around the church and admire it. It is a good place to stay.

The meissner dom is a beautiful example of how people in the middle ages good make effort in name of their beliefs. Compared to the relatively small town it is amazing to see what people could build back then

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).
