    Under no circumstances should you pass Speyer without having stopped by the cathedral! It is the largest surviving Romanesque church in the world. Since 1981 he is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In addition to the actual Dombesuch is always recommended a visit to the crypt. Also worth seeing: The Domnapf outside the church. For festivals it is filled with wine again and again.

    An impressive structure!
    If you have the opportunity to connect your bike, then have a look at it from the inside! If you think that construction started almost 500 years before Columbus discovered America ...

    Speyer is a city on the Upper Rhine. As a Roman foundation, then called Noviomagus or Civitas Nemetum (capital of the tribe of the Nemeter), it is one of the oldest cities in Germany and was as Spira to 600 center of Speyergau. In the Middle Ages Speyer was one of the most important cities of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation as a free imperial city. Between 1816 and 1945, the seat of the Bavarian administration of the Palatinate, Speyer today belongs to the state of Rhineland-Palatinate as an independent city and has 50,284 inhabitants (as of 2015).

    Speyer is well known for its imperial and royal domes. It is the world's largest surviving Romanesque church and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1981.

    One of the three large Romanesque churches on the Middle Rhine (next to the Mainz Cathedral and Worms Cathedral). They are all historically significant, but the Speyer Cathedral is simply the most beautiful and can also be seen from a distance.

    Since last year you can climb one of the towers. Beautiful panoramic view from Haardtrand to the Odenwald.

    But take the time and also see the sights nearby: Musrum, Judenbad, Altpörtel ... and not just in the first restaurants at the cathedral "come in" near and the side streets there are good / better alternatives.

    Not only the cathedral, but also Speyer itself, is worth a visit.

    The crypt is not grablege but an underground church .... thus also the oldest part of the entire structure. Costs 2-3 euros extra but you should not miss. How often do you have the opportunity to enter a room that has been unchanged for almost 1000 years?

    Everything has been said about the wonderful cathedral, and it is certainly worth a detour, especially as the city center of Speyer is very easy to cycle on.
    In addition, perhaps the indication that renovations are currently being carried out on and in the cathedral. Nevertheless, the cathedral and the tower are completely accessible.
