Limburg Cathedral, Limburg

#16 of 178 in Sightseeing in Hesse
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • One of the most worth seeing places in Limburg. If you are there but haven't been to this place, then do plan to visit this. A master piece of art at such a grand scale. This place is actually rebuilding the history right in front of your own eyes.
