Limburg Cathedral, Limburg
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.

Now, we however made stopover on our way home to the South and visited both the beautiful town of Limburg and of course the St. George Cathedral. In contrast to its colorful exterior, we are surprised by the bright but plain Interior. On closer inspection the many medieval paintings, various colourful Windows and of course the beautiful organ notice but us. It is worth so be sure to visit the Cathedral.show original
