I did not expect this in just a stop-over town, but this is really a fantastic church with beatiful surroundings. The church itself was closed due to the cold weather but the building itself is already a sight in itself.

The massive Speyer Cathedral towers over a pretty park. The outside is impressive and it's worth the time to check out all of the sides. In spite of it's size, the inside is rather plain for a cathedral, but it's still worth checking it out.

This enormous cathedral was begun in the 11th century and was the burial place for German emperors for almost 300 years. The crypt is often called the most beautiful in the world.

This is the biggest romanesque church in Europe, which makes it special. Aside from that, it was a bit devoid of art work. The crypt was rather uninteresting...at € 3.50 perperson. However, if you are in Speyer, you should go see the cathedral.

As a largely original Romanesque Cathedral dating from the period 1030-1124 it is quite plain inside. The whole building reflects its origins in the 1st and 2nd Centuries. It is also the burial place of medieval Kings and Emperors, whose tombs are set out in...More

Wonderful old stone work, and not over loaded as many other churches from later periods , has a very soothing atmosphere, definitely worth a look, and you should also take the time to look at the grounds and the park behind the Cathedral.
