Of course we have visited a lot of churches on our trip through Bavaria. The exterior with the skulls on it was different for me but upon entry the artwork struck me since it's so modern. A big menorah, bigger than I've ever seen in person is inside. A gorgeous altar too. We spent awhile inside not wanting to miss... More

This is a functioning cathedral and worth a visit. I was intrigued by the addition to the Church which is quite different in style and color, which I was told was added so there was a direct line of site to prince-bishop's Residenz on the hill. Like many churches in Europe this one sustained damage during the war and had... More

This cathedral, rebuild after being bombed during the war, is a central spot in Wurzburg. The first thing that strikes you is that it is almost entirely painted white inside. Not much in the way of stained glass, but it has many beautiful sculptures.

The color and shape of St. Kilian Cathedral gets your attention right away. It is quite different from most cathedrals. It has twin towers with a beige facade and brownish brick at the corners. There is a large clock over the main door. It has a beautiful interior. It was damaged during WWII but nicely rebuilt. Its worth a few... More

It's not often you get to see a cathedral that architecturally looks like it's been around for centuries, but hasn't. Bombed to almost nothing during WWII and rebuilt, St. Kilian's gives visitors the chance to see what many old cathedrals might look like without the accumulated years of grime, wear and tear.

The Cathedral is a must see stop when in Würzburg, even if you are not interested in churches. It is the central point of the old city of Würzburg and directly on the way between the Fortress and the Residence.

This church is beautiful even if in some places it is over the top like most catholic baroque places of worship. An unexpected delight given how the church appears to be hemmed in is the cloisters which are very peaceful.

This is a big church with friendly staff on Information. Worth a visit if only for the above mentioned statue next to the main altar.

It's the colour that hits you first, bright red. Not the nicest really but quite nice inside . It's a standout church though in the city square
