Easily the main attraction of Worms, the red sandstone cathedral is a masterpiece of engineering and also an important part of history. Stunning interior. Definitely worth seeing.

Dom zu Worms is the cathedral of the city called Worms, located in the south-west part of Germany, near to Frankfurt. In fsct, it is the most important religious building of the city. It is a very beautiful romanic cathedral, which has a reddish facade. The inner part also is very nice, so it is very recommendable a visit, if you came to Worms.
(See also Jewish cemetery, Nibelungenmuseum and Lutherdenkmal)

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 important once upon a time. But seared in the memory is the sound of the bells - loud, resonant and spine-tingling.

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 artwork of wood, statues, art and masonry is mind blowing. So much beauty and LOVE of GOD, and the talent he gave the artist shows.

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 inside is wonderful, especially the stained glass, with explanatory plaques on the walls. Many of the windows were destroyed but the modern, abstract, stained glass inserted after the war is also quite remarkable. The use of blue and red is stunning.

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 practice, so we explored to the accompaniment of magnificent musical architecture. It's another good German Dom, lots to see, plenty of interesting info, and some OTT stuff too, what with the graven images!

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!
