  • The Cathedral, Carolingian, has a very nice exterior but unfortunately is quite embedded among other buildings. Both the dome and the exterior is currently in the works. The interior has a crypt with tombs of former emperors. Admission is free, just ask for the will to visit the crypt.

  • Typical old cathedral. This building always the impression of awe of the middle ages for me. With the setting of the master builder of the time, we would have probably also the Berlin airport ready!

  • The Cathedral of St. Peter belongs with the cathedrals of Speyer and Mainz to the three Imperial cathedrals, therefore we wanted to visit him during our visit the Nibelungstadt of worms. Unfortunately a large construction site is on the South side at the time, so that the overall impression is somewhat clouded. On the north side, however, we could visit the so-called Emperor portal, where up to have played the "dispute of the Queens' in the Nibelungenlied. In the Interior of the high altar designed by Balthasar Neumann has impressed us with the name employers Peter and Paul. Especially liked us during our visit to Cathedral, which was to hear organ music, not clear was whether live play or from tape.
