Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Perched atop a rock above the Lahn and visible from afar, Limburg Cathedral dominates the skyline of Limburg. Climb the small, narrow streets of the charming town to see this perfect example of the late Romanesque period. Built around 1200, the church's exterior features polychrome plaster in white, red, ochre, and black, and is also famous for its eye-catching round window surrounded by eight small rosettes. The relatively simple interior takes the shape of the building's narrow but high central nave. Limburg Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Fascinating. Local Catholic bishop spent millions doing up his living quarters! Some think disgraceful but maybe not as the upgrade has to last centuries. Limburger town is great - a must visit. Typical German clean, tidy and well up kept.
  • One of the most beautiful Cathedrals I have ever seen. Located amazingly over a hill, with a view on the Lahn River and the two sides of the city. Worth seeing and photos taking.
