I've been to Tournai, Koln and Worms and I agree that Dom Zu Koln is quite beautiful. I even have it on my fridge as a magnet!

It would be much easier to look for a European city, that does not have a Cathedral, Every city does or they would not be cities.

Gang, any thoughts on moving this forum over to The World Around Us? Seems to have developed into more of a conversation thread than a "challange" as such. I'll move it over later if there are no objections.

Wondering if such a list can ever be accurate. Found one
at http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/list%20of%20cathedrals; it omits half of the Belgian cathedrals. For other countries I cannot know.
Have all cathedrals of all denominations been duly counted?
There is at least one cathedral in Britain Floridans might have their doubts about. Birmingham: St. Chad's.

Agreed. I don't see how any "count" can be completely accurate. In England, a few places with cathedrals don't, strictly speaking, rank as cities - for example, Bury St.Edmunds in Suffolk.
Moreover, what of places in North Germany that have a "Dom" (often translated as "cathedral") that isn't a diocesan see - for example, Bremen, where the local "territorial church" ("Landeskirche") is Reformed and doesn't have bishops. The complications are simply endless.
