Cathedral of St Peter's is a considered the most significant Gothic work in southern Germany. The infamous Judensau (Jews' sow) sits outside the church. This statue features three Jews suckling at a large female pig. It faces the former Jewish quarter. Some of the vibrant, stained-glass windows inside the church date to the 13th and 14th centuries. The Mary with Angels statue from 1280 features a colorfully painted Virgin Mary greeting the angel Gabriel. Note that photography is not allowed inside the church.

  • Gothic cathedral with relatively less religious articles compared other cathedrals, but still awe inspiring.
  • Monumental building. We could not go inside because there was a festival going on.
  • I was blown away at how the organ reverberated throughout the entire cathedral and how lovely it looked inside! If you have time for only one thing, make this that one thing!
  • Stained glass. Amazing. And the crypt downstairs with the original foundations.
  • Beautiful windows! They are actually the most beautiful I've seen in German cathedrals!
