Can't believe how this cathedral lasted so long. Representing Romanesque architecture Inside the stained glass windows & walls covered with plaques. Quiet & peaceful inside . Well worth the visit.

Worms cathedral simply towers over everything, looming on the horizon as one approaches this town across the flat landscape of the Rhine. Impressive are the altar by Balthasar Neumann and the crypt containing the tombs of the Salian emperors - Worms used to be very...More

I wish that the Dom had been more isolated from the modern activity of the city. I love old cathedrals and Germany does not disappoint. Each one has it's own unique difference. Imagining the countless hours, weeks, months and even years in creating the gorgeous...More

This was on our "to see" list for both for its architecture and its history. The only disappointment (and a major one) was that the cathedral is surrounded by (nondescript) buildings so that it's impossible to stand back and admire the full effect. However, the...More

This is the St. Peter’s Dom located on the highest point of inner city of Worms. Architecture is Romanesque, only part is originally built in 1110 and the rest in 1181 and 13-14 century. Today a Catholic Church .

It's very plain inside and the outside is currently covered in scaffolding with lots of building works going on, so probably not a good time to visit. Other cathedrals in other cities are much better.

Arriving in Worms, there's so much on offer that it can be hard to choose which attraction. The Dom drew us as it was Sunday and Mass had not long ended, and to our wonder, the organist had stayed on for overtime or possibly for...More

Impressive church. Elaborate and beautiful wood and marble high altar. Remaining church likable for its simplicity. Felt it conductive to spirituality due to its simplicity reminding us of Luther in a Catholic Church. Still surrounded by construction!

After first night in adjacent hotel looked around cathedral and found 4 new bells ready for installation. On second morning saw bells loaded onto lorry for short trip to the tower and installation. Something we will never see again.
