Browse the acclaimed works of art and hear the sounds of the 20 bells in one of Germany’s largest Romanesque churches.

Wuerzburg Cathedral is the city’s dominant religious structure, with iconic twin towers. It is considered a masterpiece of Romanesque design and has served an important role in the city’s ecclesiastical upbringing. Examine the vast collection of artifacts from over the centuries for a sense of the church’s rich tapestry of history.

Gaze up at the tall towers with off-white middle sections adorned with windows and an outer layer of red and gray bricks. The towers flank a central block with an elegant clock and a rose window. At the base of the cathedral lies its central entrance, which leads onto a pedestrianized plaza full of cafés, shops and restaurants.

Enter the large cathedral, the construction of which dates back to the early 11th century. Among the highlights is the Schoenbornkapelle Chapel, which has a marvelous fresco and acclaimed stained glass.

See the ornate altar and the many carvings decorating the white columns of the nave. Marvel at the enormous menorah separating the rows of pews. The array of bishop’s gravestones includes several created by architect Tilman Riemenschneider.

Guided tours are available in German for a small fee. Join a meditation with a backdrop of organ music at midday. Learn about the history of the cathedral via the adjacent Museum am Dom.

Note that the building was partially burned down in World War II, before being reconstructed and consecrated in 1967. Some parts from the original Baroque structure remain in the transept and chancel.

Visit from morning until late afternoon from Monday to Saturday. The cathedral opens a little later on Sundays and holidays.

Find the Wuerzburg Cathedral in the center of the Old Town area of the city. Arrive at either the Wuerzburg Hbf or Wuerzburg Sud railway station and walk here in less than 20 minutes. Visit nearby attractions, such as the Neumuenster chuch, the Falkenhaus (Falcon House) and the colorful Marienkapelle chapel.
