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.

  • This is a great Gothic Cathedral with lots of stained glass. There is an impressive statue of St Peter before the cross in the back of the church. It is hard to get a good picture of it without a lot....  more

  • Free to go in and look at the architecture and magnificent silver alter - a quick 10 minute side trip, but very enjoyable

  • It is an impressive Gothic style cathedral. The location is within the center of the town and around other points of interest. Definitely worth visiting it.

  • Original church building was constructed in year 700 but was burned down in the late 13th century and reconstructed. It is the only Gothic Cathedral in Bavaria and has the largest hanging organ in the world. It is an amazing experience walking inside the church and also looking at it from the outside. I highly recommend visiting it if you are in Regensburg.
  • Very nice Dom that shows the might of the Catholic church in it's hay day. I can sit in here and image a time goneby when this place would have been the center for community, politics, faith and life in general. The layout does justice to the importance the placed on the church leadership. The whole experience is really mesmerizing.
  • St Peter Cathedral Visited on 23/9/2019 St Peter Cathedral is also known as Regensburg Cathedral or Dom Peter. It is of Gothic architecture, having two spires. The exterior features some intricate and interesting medieval sculptures, while the interior has the same plus stained glass windows. In comparison with many other cathedrals I have come across, this is not the most elaborate, but I believe it still deserves a score of 5 stars.
  • I have been visiting my friends since 1987 they live 12 km near Regensburg and are the owners of a 15th Century Castle with a Brewery. I love Bavaria, particularly Regensburg with its historic old stone bridge, museums, galleries Heid Platz markets, and of course the beautiful Cathedral where I enjoy contemplation and taking photos from your not so usual angles ...Guten tag!
  • Along with Cologne Cathedral, the Regensburg cathedral is one of the most important Gothic cathedrals in Germany. + France-influenced type of "classic" Gothic cathedrals + Characteristic are the basilica complex with a three-storey elevation of the central nave, the transept and an imposing west facade with two towers. + overall very imposing and peaceful feeling
