The uniqueness of this 11th and 12th Century cathedral is that parts of it are in very different styles, due to remodelling in the early 18th Century, and rebuilding after WWII. We went at 1205 for the reflective organ music.

Beautiful church that you reach as you walk up through the main shopping centre. Interesting architecturally and very pleasant inside. Lots of history. The church was apparently rebuilt after WW II and there is a nice blend of the old and the new.

This historical church is very huge and it stands out in the city center. The interior is predominantly white and they are many beautiful statues and carvings inside. Worth a visit if you are in Wurzburg.

Is there a fee for entry into the Dom? Or is that for the guided tour only? Thank you.

You can enter at no cost, guided tours cost extra It's well worth visiting, the guided tour gives you more information.
