Relatively plain and unassuming from the outside, Basilica of the Nativity of Our Lady Regensburg is world-famous for its highly decorated Rococo interior. One of the city's major attractions, the core of the church is believed to be well over a thousand years old. The building's Gothic vaulted ceilings, along with several other main features, were added to the structure during the Middle Ages. Most of the rich interior decorations date to the 18th century, when Rococo was much in fashion all over Europe. Walk inside to see the site's famous image of the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus. Remember: You can take photos only if no church service is in progress while you're there.

  • This cathedral is a masterpiece of the Rococo and Baroque style of the 18th century, probably the best in Germany. Upon entering, you are greeted by some of the most colourful frescoes and gold...

  • Wonderful little church. Luckily, with god's love, they have found a way to keep the visitors, and their dirty feet, out of harm's way. By erecting a sturdy iron fence, to keep the riff-raff away from 80% of the pretty interior.
  • Stunningly beautiful!!!
