  • After seeing more Cathedrals than I can count in my life time I wasn't expecting much different but the was a very nice stop and one I would put toward the top of my list. 
  • The Cathedral is one of the lichtdurchflutetsten sacred buildings. The architecture of the Cathedral is impressive and a visit to the crypt is absolutely recommended.

  • Fantastic Cathedral that should not be missed on a trip near Speyer
  • Turm Besteigung ist absolut lohnenswert, toller Aussicht über die Stadt.
  • While impressive to look at and certainly visible from most point in town, it wasn't anything special. It is however, very close to midtown. It is also very close to the Auto and Technik museum.
