  • The Cathedral is of Gothic style flamboyant with its two bell towers, amounting to more than one hundred meters to the sky. The construction of the Cathedral St-Pierre began in the 13th century and lasted for 600 years, it is one of the symbols of the city. The photos are interesting to take in this foggy atmosphere of this small fresh morning. The inside is huge even though a bit dark, and reveals a beautiful crypt where the Bishops of Regensburg are buried.

  • 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!
