  • The beautiful town of Speyer with its cathedral shows history. The building with a recognizable cruiser is bright and has great acoustics at concerts or fairs!

  • Beautiful Cathedral. If you want to go up to the Tower, you will have to pay 6th. Attention in case of wind, not easy to access. No stroller access for the Tower

  • If you are into history and culture, a most definite place to go. Beautiful scenery.
  • A quite simple cathedral but worth the visit nontheless. The candle folder statue on the right is quite impressive and the structure itself with 2 altars is note worthy. Always on the right there's a cript with many relics.
