This Romanesque cathedral was begun in the 12th century. It has a choir at either end, so you enter through a door in the side (nave). Wonderful to hear the church bells all over the city ring!

Worms cathedral simply towers over everything, looming on the horizon as one approaches this town across the flat landscape of the Rhine. Impressive are the altar by Balthasar Neumann and the crypt containing the tombs of the Salian emperors - Worms used to be very...More

I wish that the Dom had been more isolated from the modern activity of the city. I love old cathedrals and Germany does not disappoint. Each one has it's own unique difference. Imagining the countless hours, weeks, months and even years in creating the gorgeous...More

This is the St. Peter’s Dom located on the highest point of inner city of Worms. Architecture is Romanesque, only part is originally built in 1110 and the rest in 1181 and 13-14 century. Today a Catholic Church .
