Cathedral of St Peter's, Regensburg

4.8
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.

  • Breathtaking cathedral... astoundingly beautiful! Definately a must see!
  • This is the best church i have ever seen in my life. Notre dame is quite over hyped while this don't get attention. I just love it. The glass architecture inside is really beyond the mind.
  • Majestic gothic style cathedral and famous for its beautiful medievel stained glass windows. The inside is big and very tall make even a slight sound echoes and creates some feeling.
  • Spectacular Gothic church. Well maintained.
  • Yes, the cathedral towers over the old city. It's a spectacular sight when you're standing in front of it. Truly a gothic piece of architecture. Have a seat inside and be sure to take the time and look at the detail of the stained glass.
