St. Kilian Cathedral, Wurzburg

#2 of 21 in Historic Sites in Wurzburg
Architectural Building Church
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.

  • Certainly, as inconspicuous... but..., the Cathedral has Interior today form outside 20 bells with a weight of 26 Tonnen.Sie one of the largest church bells of in Germany. Eleven of the twelve bells of the main gelaeutes Schilling in Heidelberg were cast in 1965 by Friedrich Wilhelm. Compared to conventional bells, Schilling poured the Würzburg chiming in progressive St. The big bells around one-third heavier that are almost twice as heavy small like bells of moderate rib. The reason Bell is especially heavy ribbed side, so that it forms a serious Foundation for "airy" disposition of the main gelaeutes extending over almost two octaves. Sounds super class!

  • The Würzburger DOM St. Kilian is a must for tourists, also still for free. Over 1000 years old and beautiful inside and out. Newly renovated indoor.

  • As I said I would make DOM a dream journey not just to focus on when I'm not particularly interested in but he belongs on a city tour dazuz
