If you want a treasure off the beaten path, visit Worms in Germany. It is located in the Rhineland Palatinate of Germany. Make sure you have GPS access. There is a wonderful Romanesque cathedral built in 1171-1230. Take some time to visit the cathedral. Lots of history and beauty that you will not find elsewhere. Close by is a Jewish... More

Really worth a visit, a pretty place with good restaurants and lovely walks along the Rhein. The Bakfishfest is brilliant.

Driving to Heidelberg from the Mosel valley, we stopped at Worms for lunch. We should have planned to stay longer. There’s so much history here, especially Judeo-Christain history, as well as the second world war. If we’d had the time, we’d have taken a guided tour with someone who knows what’s where. But even just trolling around like we did,... More

I put this disclaimer on all my Worms reviews: If you're interested in Christian/religious history, Worms is a good place to visit. If not, Worms probably won't impress you. The "if you are" portion: If Christian/religious history does interest you, one could spend anywhere from a few hours to a whole day seeing and taking in the sights. As a... More

Don't miss the Jewish quarter. Interesting. A lot of history wrapped into Worms. Go to the local information Centre near Neumarkt, ask for the restaurant list and a map plus the walking tour. On a sunny day you will be fine. Remarkable: a lot of ice cream eaters in summer time and a host of ice cream selling points.

True, Woms is not high on the list of German cities to visit but for a few days of quiet time it's ideal. The Dom (cathdral) and there is a good amount of Jewish history as well. Well preserved (and/or rebuilt) medieval walls stand round much of the city.

Worms is a small idyllic city which seems to have kept its charm… it is worth a visit IF one has ticked off Heidelberg’s sights.

Visually unappealing and grotty. Worns is mainly post war and like many German cities,it's riddled with nasty concrete and so so shopping. Try Heidelberg,Munich and Marburg instead.
