Cathedral of St Peter's is a considered the most significant Gothic work in southern Germany. The infamous Judensau (Jews' sow) sits outside the church. This statue features three Jews suckling at a large female pig. It faces the former Jewish quarter. Some of the vibrant, stained-glass windows inside the church date to the 13th and 14th centuries. The Mary with Angels statue from 1280 features a colorfully painted Virgin Mary greeting the angel Gabriel. Note that photography is not allowed inside the church.

  • Original church building was constructed in year 700 but was burned down in the late 13th century and reconstructed. It is the only Gothic Cathedral in Bavaria and has the largest hanging organ in the world. It is an amazing experience walking inside the church and also looking at it from the outside. I highly recommend visiting it if you are in Regensburg.
  • Very nice Dom that shows the might of the Catholic church in it's hay day. I can sit in here and image a time goneby when this place would have been the center for community, politics, faith and life in general. The layout does justice to the importance the placed on the church leadership. The whole experience is really mesmerizing.
