Erfurt Cathedral (German: Erfurter Dom, officially Hohe Domkirche St. Marien zu Erfurt, English: Cathedral Church of St Mary at Erfurt), also known as St Mary's Cathedral, is the largest and oldest church building in the Thuringian city of Erfurt, central Germany. It is the episcopal seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Erfurt. The cathedral was mainly built in the International Gothic style and is located on a hillside overlooking the main town square (Domplatz, Cathedral Square), directly next to St Severus' Church. As a unique architectural ensemble, both churches together form the city's landmark. Former German names include Marienkirche and Propsteikirche Beatae Mariae Virginis.

  • There are two beautiful churches at Domplatz at Erfurt, and this is the more beautiful of the two. The stained glass windows are just simply stunning

  • The Erfurt or St. Marien Dom is a fine example of late Gothic architecture, inside and out. It dominates the city from the hill on which it is located, Climbing the steps will be a chore for those...

  • A magnificent architectural wonder in my opinion. You cannot help feel insignificant in the vicinity of this architectural behemoth. Right outside the entrance on the blackish stairs, you can find a stall to pit in coins and imprint on it the engraving and for the Cathedral. It will cost a euro, but you can have this as a souvenir. The church and the Cathedral are quite close to each other. The insides were a little too dimly lit but it's spectacular from the outside.
  • A very beautiful church with nice stained glass windows. It’s up a long flight of stairs, and I am not sure if there are accessible ways to get up to the church
