Naumburg Cathedral UNESCO World Heritage reviews
Impressive stonework, carving and stained glass windows, but I found the €7.50 entrance fee + €2 for photos a bit steep. Naumburg is definitely getting everything they can from Uta !

Euro 7.50 per person and another 2.00 if you want to take photos is a lot (and there‘s still a box pleading for donations), but you‘ll remember Uta long after you‘ve forgotten the price. The statues..... more

A very interesting church with an interesting history. The art in the church is unique and striking. The cathedral itself is worth a day trip to see this beautifully preserved 1,000 year old World Heritage Site. Sadly, the cathedral is about the only thing worth seeing in Naumburg. We were there on a Saturday and the town rolls up the sidewalk at noon except for a few cafes near the cathedral.
Extremely rich architecture. We had the privilege of a one hour guided tour and learned a lot about the history of the dome, the unusual case of the founder figures, the narrow path to paradise, why you say "Buch aufschlagen" (to "beat open a book") in German for opening a book and many more details to understand what was going on for centuries behind these walls. An absolute must visit.
