Limburg Cathedral, Limburg
(4.6/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Perched atop a rock above the Lahn and visible from afar, Limburg Cathedral dominates the skyline of Limburg. Climb the small, narrow streets of the charming town to see this perfect example of the late Romanesque period. Built around 1200, the church's exterior features polychrome plaster in white, red, ochre, and black, and is also famous for its eye-catching round window surrounded by eight small rosettes. The relatively simple interior takes the shape of the building's narrow but high central nave. Arrange your visit to Limburg Cathedral and discover more family-friendly attractions in Limburg using our Limburg tour planner.

  • If you are a resident it is of course not quite as spectacular, but family and friends are always impressed. The Diocesan Museum, the Cathedral Treasury is also recommended. It is located only a few metres from the Cathedral.
