St. Kilian Cathedral, Wurzburg
(4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
A Romanesque church whose construction began in 1040, St. Kilian Cathedral is the third church to be built on this site after both its predecessors fell victim to fires. In the 1700s, the interior was redone in Baroque style, which contrasted with the original's more somber Romanesque architecture. The church was badly damaged in World War II, then restored to its original Romanesque style. Certain elements of the Baroque interior were left intact, giving the church a sometimes-controversial blend of styles, including Gothic. Check online to see when special tours are offered, or book a private one through the church website. Be sure to schedule at least two weeks in advance. By using our Wurzburg vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to St. Kilian Cathedral and other attractions in Wurzburg.

  • Interesting architecture and has some other nice buildings around it. Quite austere inside. Entry fee and I didn't see much info in English. 
  • 我們走在維爾茨堡街上看到的的地標,有很顯眼的兩個哥德式雙尖塔,她叫聖基利安大教堂,建於11-12 世紀是最偉大的羅馬式大教堂之一,內部是巴洛克風格,但是在1945年戰爭時全毀,於1960-1967年才重建,聖基利教堂高105米是德國第三大教堂建築,僅次於緬茵茲(Mainz)和施佩耶爾(Speyer),是撒利安皇帝(Salischer Kaiser)德國建築藝術的代表作,也是建築史重要里程碑。 
  • However, I did take the time to walk around the building. The back of the cathedral is a completely different style from the front. I enjoyed the architecture.
