Guided City Tour

Paderborn holds a rich variety of sights, worth seeing: The tour will lead us to the town wall´s medieval tower, along beautifully redecorated studwork houses and past significant churches. We will also visit the Kaiserpfalz and the famous, three-gabled town hall with its Weserrenaissance architecture. A special sight is presented by some 200 water springs, named Paderquellen. They rise beneath the cathedral amid beautiful parkways. This is where the city´s name derives from and where the river Pader is born.

Guided Cathedral Tour

In the 13th century, the cathedral was reconstructed, not due to damage but to bring it up to the current artistic and ecclesiastical standards. Construction most likely began at the western end of the building (late Romanesque basilika, before 1220). The nave followed in form of a hall church (i.e. with three aisles all reaching to the height of the central roof) in early Gothic style. It was completed in the late 13th century with High Gothic elements.

During the guided tour you will get information about the religious, artistic and art-historical dimensions of Paderborn Cathedral.
