  • Didn’t go inside, though the interior looks stunning. Just as pretty on the outside with its baroque architecture. Interesting shape too to admire in an L shape enclosing the Domplatz. Right by other sites such as the old court and the Dom. Absolute must visit when in town!
  • The residence is harbouring, a small but valuable art gallery worthy of visit. Contains many baroque and medieval art treasures. Among them some noteworthy paintings of Lucas Cranach the Elder, Anthony van Dyck, Jan Lievens among others. The interior is magnificent.
