Cathedral (Dom) of St Paul, Münster

To the west of Münster's Prinzipalmarkt, in the spacious Domplatz, is the Cathedral (Dom) of St Paul, the largest church in Westphalia. Built between 1225 and 1265, it is in a style transitional between Romanesque and Gothic. On the south side, in the porch (Paradies) of the west transept, are 13th C. figures of apostles and saints. Notable features of the interior, which is of impressive spatial effect, are the numerous tombs of bishops and canons (including Cardinal von Galen, d. 1946) and an astronomical clock (1540) on the wall of the choir. The chapterhouse has fine paneling. In the Domkammer are displayed a variety of objects from the diocese's thousand years of history.
