  • Came here while on holiday on a river cruise. Very interesting cathedral and an oasis of calm in Speyer. 
  • At the Hubertus mass with numerous hunting horn blowers, we visited Speyer for a day. A trip to the city, which many know sure forbeifahren on the highway, is highly recommended. Is well signposted and well to reach the Cathedral in Speyer, the sight from outside (be sure once walking around the whole Cathedral) and the dignity of the Church from the inside to describe I leave the specialists like. I can only recommend. We come back.

  • This is a really awe-inspiring example of a Romanesque cathedral, built in red sandstone and well-maintained. It's justifiably a world heritage site and you can easily spend a few hours there. Speyer'...  more »

  • Truly an impressive place to visit and enjoy the peacefulness, even though literally hundreds of thr faithful or simply curious are milling around. Very nice indeed.
  • Fantastic Cathedral that should not be missed on a trip near Speyer
  • A beautiful church with a lot of history held within it. Make sure you climb up the tower to see the view from there.
  • Turm Besteigung ist absolut lohnenswert, toller Aussicht über die Stadt.
