An 11th-century cathedral, Speyer Cathedral is the largest Romanesque church in the world. Before entering this UNESCO World Heritage site, take in its red sandstone architecture. Inside, a series of colorful murals depicts the Life of the Virgin. A pamphlet and audio guide detail the cathedral's history. For a small fee, you can also visit the large crypt, the oldest part of the cathedral. A playground near the parking lot can help kids burn off energy before going inside.

  • Nice place to view. It's a cathedral so you know what your address going to get. A good backdrop for a selfie. Cannot see why it has a higher rating that the technical museum!  more »

  • Very nice. Nothing very special except the crypt.
  • 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.

  • Magnificent Dorm
  • A beautiful church with a lot of history held within it. Make sure you climb up the tower to see the view from there.
