This Cathedral is huge for its population, sits high up on a hill. It is beautiful inside and outside, well worth a visit.

There is some fine stained glass to admire here, above the choir. There is also a tall candelabrum in the shape of a man holding out his arms that each hold a fat candle. This was made in 1160 and is unusual and arresting.

This church has very old parts but is made larger and more beautiful over a long period. There is a relic from Bonifatius, the bisschop who tried to convert the locals to cristianity. The church is very long.

We had planned to go inside, but having criss-crossed town several ways on foot, fatigue and the steps changed our minds.

We arrived at the Domplatz in the early evening believing that we would only get to see the exterior of the cathedral. The exterior alone with its Gothic designed spires and vaults is worth a look. We climbed the 80 steps to the side entry...More

We had to walk around the cathedral to enter sideways as the main entrance (80 steps) were blocked by the 4/5 levels of carwrecks for a musical festival in August. Inside the Dom it is cool and interesting. Not as exuberant with gold like you...More

Beautiful inside, a large amount of stairs to climb to get to it. About halfway up is a Thuringer stand and beer garden. Great prices and a nice view of the city square.

Hire some that will show you around and that will explain to you the whole history of this place. Hard to put in words...beautiful? Amazing? Majestic? A must see when in Erfurt!

impressive, marvellous look on the city when you are above the steps. A bit desappointed when visiting the inside of the cathedral

The cathedral has quite a number of treasures worth viewing: 600 year-old windows, a painting by Lucas Cranach the Elder, and amazing artwork around the 8 central pillars. Spend time there, and try to digest what you see on the paintings and what they symbolize.

I would say less than 10 minutes, so guess about 700 metres
