Speyer is home to the largest Romanesque cathedral in the world – the main attraction in a city given World Heritage status. This impressive structure is the final resting place of eight Holy Roman emperors and German kings including Friedrich Barbarossa and Heinrich IV.
Speyer was once one of the most important settlements located along the Rhine and has had many claims to fame over more than 2,000 years of history. Not only did it witness the separation of the Catholic and Protestant churches in 1529, but it is also Rhineland Palatinate’s starting point for the pilgrimage known as the Way of Saint James. The journey takes people to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain.
