Although the Gothic Budolfi Cathedral is not very large, it makes a striking statement due to its gleaming white bricks. The current cathedral replaced earlier structures in the late 14th century. In the interior the organ stands out and is still in working order. It...More

We had a very short visit to the Cathedral with our small tour group. Beautiful ceiling fresco’s and beautiful sanctuary with a beautiful altar and chandeliers. Worth a short visit and excellent for good photographers.
