Limburg Cathedral, Limburg

4.6
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Limburg
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. Limburg Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Limburg Edition.

  • Long, I knew the Limburg Cathedral just by driving by here - either by car or with the ICE. And of course he made as much here. But the visit is then but still much more beautiful, because you can enjoy the building from the inside. He is maybe not so insanely great, but nice bright inside. And together with the old town, visit Limburg is absolutely worthwhile.

  • Limburg is now Germany's very well known and worth a visit in any case. The Cathedral and the old town are a true eye candy for the visitors of Limburg. Of course, there are also many nice shops and restaurants in the old town.

  • 12th century Catholic cathedral is located next to the Lahn river. Its beautiful but also renovated therefore have newer look. Must watch attraction of Limburg.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting. Good view. Lovely altstadt.
  • Lots of restaurants and shops centrally located in the city along with motels. Very nice.
  • Definitely make your way up here. The view is very enjoyable!
