Würzburg Cathedral is the fourth Romanesque cathedral in Germany after Mainz, Speyer and Worms. Having visited Speyer and Worms before, I had the opportunity to compare. At the same time, it is one of the most destroyed cathedrals in Germany during the Second World War. The cathedral is dedicated to the Irish preacher St. Kilian, buried in the cathedral. St. Kilian baptized Gosbert, Duke of Franconia in the 7th century, but was killed by his wife while he was on a campaign. , However, the dedication did not take place until 1967. For 9 centuries before that, the cathedral was dedicated to St. Andrew. The current cathedral was built in 1040-1075 on the site of two previous burned-down cathedrals. In the process, it was rebuilt and acquired a baroque appearance with a large number of panels and sculptures. Most of this we will never see again. The cathedral burned down on March 16, 1945, along with almost all of Würzburg in a firestorm. Despite the absence of military enterprises in the city, 225 Lancasters of the Royal Air Force purposefully destroyed the city with incendiary bombs in order to terrorize the civilian population and break the will to resist. 5,000 people were burned during the bombing. Interestingly, after 20 days, American troops entered the city... The cathedral, badly damaged by fire, collapsed in 1946. Most of the masterpieces of medieval cathedral art (Hans Bühler, Heinrich Schönfeld, Oswald Onghers) burned down in the fire. The British also burned the altar of Tilman Riemenschneider. A significant part of what is in front of us is the reconstruction of the 1950s and 60s. There are surviving sculptures and tombstones. The missing paintings and sculptures are trying to compensate with modern ones. It is unusual to see a Jewish "Menorah" by Andreas Moritz in a Catholic cathedral. But this, of course, in no way can compensate for what has been lost...

The Würzburg Cathedral, also known as Würzburger Dom or St. Killian's Cathedral, is a prominent and historically significant church. Construction began in 1040 and it was dedicated to St. Killian, who was martyred nearby in the 7th century and is believed to be buried here. The cathedral was heavily damaged in the 1945 bombing of Würzburg, and a large part of the building collapsed in 1946. Reconstruction was completed in 1967.

This imposing building is in the middle of the Old Town. It’s a principal work of German architecture of the 11th and 12th centuries, the fourth largest Romanesque cathedral in Germany. It was built from 1040 to 1188, the East towers were built in 1237. The interior is beautiful with the altar, sacrament house, choir stalls and Schönborn-kapelle. The cathedral is majestic! Everybody must see, don’t miss it!

The Cathedral is spectacular and should not be missed when in this city. I highly recommend also visiting the Marienberg Fortress and the Wurzburg Residence and Court Garden, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The architecture, art works and complete beauty of these sites are really "must see" places.

This was the first German Cathedral for us on this 2023 trip, and it certainly served to whet our appetites for more Cathedrals and Churches in Germany. The art treasures of each and every one of these is different, but always satisfying when coupled with the architecture itself.

This lovely church is located in downtown Wurzburg. It features some interesting artwork by local artist Tilman Riemenschneider--one of the only places in which you can see his work in situ--that is, where it was originally meant to be. Take in the whole building and then spend some time looking at many of the individual objects.

The two towers are very distinctive and dominating the street. The style is Romanesque and one of the largest Romanesque churches in Germany.

Very nice cathedral, dedicated to the Irish Saint Kilian. What strikes the visitor right at the entrance is a significant menorah, representing stage 1 , Jesus in his early years as a Jew and the teachings of the Old Testament. Further down, almost in the middle of the aisle, is a white candle, representing stage 2, Christianity and the New Testament. While by the altar, stage 3 is represented, the Apocalypse. When facing the altar, on the right hand side, there is a door which takes you to the cloister.

Lovely to see and to view from several perspectives - both standing in front of it and from afar when looked back upon from down the busy shopping street.
