Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Franconia / Lower Franconia / Wurzburg / St. Kilian Cathedral
A Romanesque church whose construction began in 1040, St. Kilian Cathedral is the third church to be built on this site after both its predecessors fell victim to fires. In the 1700s, the interior was redone in Baroque style, which contrasted with the original's more somber Romanesque architecture. The church was badly damaged in World War II, then restored to its original Romanesque style. Certain elements of the Baroque interior were left intact, giving the church a sometimes-controversial blend of styles, including Gothic. Check online to see when special tours are offered, or book a private one through the church website. Be sure to schedule at least two weeks in advance.

St. Kilian Cathedral reviews
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.
