This is one of the more impressive Romanesque cathedrals of the region with a baroque high alter. At Advent and Christmas they have a unique manger scene in the back of the church with cactus and various figures.

If there is a reason to visit Worms, a city not mentioned in most travel itineraries to Germany, then the Worms Cathedral would be the reason. Of course, what drawn me to Worms in the first place is also my reason for visiting this cathedral...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
