The cathedral is beautifully situated on top of the hill in Limburg town. The colourful roman exterior is in sharp contrast with the gothic ascetic interior. Very much worth a visit. And it is a nice hike up from the town below. A note, the castle is next door, but undergoing now a big renovation.

The Cathedral in Limburg am Lahn is well worth a detour from the A3. Beautifully situated above a small old-town, with scenic views of the Lahn River, this Cathedral is a flamboyant late Romanesque design with many distinctive details. The exterior painting of the building is very colorful and the interior stone arches and galleries are a delight to see. While not covered with statuary, there are several superb stone carvings inside. The nativity scene is creative and includes running water in a small stream, live goldfish, and a carved elephant that is part of the wise men’s caravan. There is no entry fee. There is limited parking near the Dom and a W/C at the bottom of the plaza.

Light, airy, clear shapes and lines, no overburdening with golden decor and statues. A must see when you are in town!
