Mainz Cathedral reviews
Entrance is free, there were some construction works on the facade so on one side it is not ideal for photos. The interior was nothing impressive for me, in this case I am a bigger fan of the Cologne.... more »
5 stars for the imposing exterior 1 star for poor interior. What a great experience would to climb up to the towers... more »
Mainz Dom has the baroque vibes protected and Roman culture is engraved inside. There are so many details to be checked. You should visit and enjoy the sightseeing. There are thombs underneath for the old bishops and also a small room for praying. Furthermore if you want to learn more about there is a museum inside with a small entrance fee.
Enormous cathedral in romanesque style. Especially the dome makes great impression, is extremely high. Gray walls only enhance this feeling. And it was not destroyed during the ww2!
