St. Kilian Cathedral, Wurzburg

4.1
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.

  • The DOM St. Kilian has impressed me. I very like the building and you can see the towers from the old main bridge.

  • Entirely po, world war, there is a fine area rich in stuccoes near the altar, to appreciate his works should probably be art experts. I haven't found anything that any church umbra or Tuscany has more to offer the tourist not too cultured. If you are in Wuerzburg you can visit, but go there on purpose.

  • Tightly surrounded by neighboring buildings, an extensive interio resounded with the two organ pieces played during a midday recital.  more »
