Attractions in Speyer

It would be hard to find a city of this size in Germany which has as much to offer as Speyer. This may be why Speyer was third in the choice of Germany's most lo/ivable small- and medium-sized towns made by users of the German hotel portal Hotel.de in 2015. The main attraction is the Kaiserdom, the Imperial Cathedral, which has been a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site since 1981. It has had a new Visitor Centre since 21 March 2016! Among other things, visitors can borrower audio guides in various languages. The newly renovated Kaisersaal and the observation deck for visitors has also been open to visitors again since April. The view across the Rhine valley is spectacular as it is from the wing of the Lufthansa jumbo jet at the Technic Museum Speyer! By visiting the Memorial Church and Trinity Church you walk in the footsteps of Martin Luther and the reformation.
