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.

Cathedral of St Peter's Reviews
駅から旧市街に向かうと見えてくる大きな尖塔の建物です。内部は見学自由で、入ったときはちょうどオルガンの練習中で、バッハやリストの曲をメドレーのように組み合わせたものを弾いていました。荘厳な響きが素晴らしいです。 more »It is a large spire building that you can see when you head from the station to the old town. The inside was free to visit, and when I entered, I was practicing the organ, playing a medley-like combination of Bach and Liszt songs. The majestic sound is wonderful.

Once in a lifetime you have to see that. I've been coming back for 45 years!
Beautiful church. We visited during the organ concert at noon. It was beautiful! The stained glass is incredible.
Wonderful, solid, strong building with amazing windows, especially at the east end and the world's biggest and heaviest hanging organ .. it's an astonishing instrument. Absolutely beautiful. Come into building, sit a while and let you eyes adjust to the light before seeing what splendid details this place reveals.
