Cathedral of St Peter's, Regensburg

4.7
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.

  • While it had outside even 15 degrees, it was felt inside "0"... Otherwise impressive cathedral with great Windows and altar, should look at it in any case.

  • Everything very simply kept as I never even saw it. Nobody here loves the DOM?

  • Even the atheists totally impressive! Great. The Catholics have always been understood to impress their children. The Interior... the window. French high Gothic style. It is an unforgettable experience.

  • What a beautiful cathedral! Inside is not as colorful as others like it but it is beautiful nonetheless. You can take photos so bring a camera but leave the flash off. You should easily spend 45-60 minutes walking around.
  • Impresive cathedral with gothic architecture. The level of details are so deep that it would tale hours to grasp all of them.
  • Great piece of history to check out while in the area!
  • Nice cathedral. More maintenance is required.
  • Always, always a pleasant surprise to come back to this cathedral! A must visit when you are in Regensburg! Take your time to explore it all! 👌😊
