Meissen Cathedral


Experience architectural history up close

Meissen Cathedral is one of the most important sights of the Saxon city and very significant for Meissen both in terms of architecture and church history. In 1130, the cathedral was initially built in the Romanesque architectural style. About 100 years later, numerous Gothic elements were added or newly built. Work is still being done on the impressive cathedral today. But for the fact that so many different architectural styles come together here, Meissen Cathedral appears to be a very uniform building. Particularly worth seeing are the huge stone statues of the founders and patrons, as well as the bell of St. John. This is considered one of the most figurative bells in the world.
