Cathedral of St Peter's is a considered the most significant Gothic work in southern Germany. The infamous Judensau (Jews' sow) sits outside the church. This statue features three Jews suckling at a large female pig. It faces the former Jewish quarter. Some of the vibrant, stained-glass windows inside the church date to the 13th and 14th centuries. The Mary with Angels statue from 1280 features a colorfully painted Virgin Mary greeting the angel Gabriel. Note that photography is not allowed inside the church.

  • If you are into cathedrals by all means visit this St. Peter's. Very old and wonderful. Open to public and free.

  • A must for everyone who loves old churches. Was impressed mostly by the windows, made in colored glass. Everyone tells a different story.
  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Bavaria. Excellent Gothic architecture. Truly inspirational
