We visited the Cathedral and we were impressed with the architecture, the history and the astronomical clock. The music from the choir was nice too, it helped us relax after the long walk in the beautiful city.

This is a beautiful cathedral in city centre. It is nice to stop for 10 minutes and from outside it looks very pretty.

This cathedral was built in the 14th century, so when you step through one of the entrances, you step into historic surroundings where there is always room for rest and reflection. There is much to admire when you elect to wander around the vast cathedral area, but I must mention the magnificent astronomical clock, constructed in the 16th century. Granted, the astronomical clock in Prague old town is more famous, but this example is not to be sneezed at. See the picture. So, don't forget to step into this cathedral, even if all you want is a bit of rest.

Big church, well reconstructed and architecturally spectacular, but nothing really special excepted fantastic and wonderful astronomical clock. The latter is absolutely worth seeing.

Large church - not as exciting as Cologne Cathedral or St. Lamberti Church which is just around the corner.
But the church with its Astronomical clock is definitely worth a visit

This impressive cathedral is almost 800 years old and contains quite a few beautiful details (in particular the astronomic clock).

BUT - having seen so many great churches around the world, St. Paulus Dom doesn’t stand out. It’s worth a short visit, all right, but don’t stay too long: It’s kind of gloomy, sorry to say.

Decent cathedral, but the must-see highlight is the daily clockwork-parade with the three kings .much reminiscent of the one in Prague. However, do note that unlike in Prague, this clock is inside the building... quite easy to miss when you're in a harry to find it on time... we only just made it!

Münster Cathedral is one of those churches that is both overwhelming and soothing. Sit down in the cavernous space and take in the heritage atmosphere. For this church, however built in the 13th century, is already the third "edition" of the most important Catholic church in Münster. The first church on this spot was built in the 9th century. Münster Cathedral is one of the most important buildings of the historic center of Münster. Entrance is free and the place isn't overrun by tourist groups, surely not in January.

Muenster Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church, dedicated to St Paul. Among the most significant buildings in the city is one of its symbols and its tallest tower dominates the view of the central area.

This is a historic cathedral, which has been restored following extensive damage during WWII. The exterior is being cleaned. There is a helpful sheet (available in German, English and Dutch) to guide you round. The astronomical clock is fascinating.
