Limburg Cathedral, Limburg

#37 of 598 in Things to do in Hesse
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.

  • Having stayed at a place so was something spectacular, in addition to my friend gave me a tour of this place. In my case, this surprises me since it is not possible to see this type of architecture in Mexico

  • To watch! Especially nice, I find the location on the Lahn rock. For construction history buffs: An example of the transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic style. Interesting is also a leadership that is done usually by a nun. Not for everyone, but you can also on the galleries that are normally not accessible for visitors.

  • the Limburg Cathedral impresses by its location on Castle Hill (great views), should be seen anyway, cross images its inner height and brightness inside, if possible in the course of the choir room

  • 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.
  • Beautiful Cathedral (it's the one visible from the autobahn). Go inside and look around. It's like stepping into a history book!
  • real shiiiiiiet
  • Toller Dom ..... :-)
  • I've seen things more special.. But it's nice!
