Unfortunately we were not able to get inside as there was a mass going on this Sunday morning. But outside, the Cathedral is both massive and spectacular. A must-see while in Reggensburg!

What more can you say, the Cathedral is beautiful inside and out. Restoration is an ongoing process. When you finish viewing the Cathedral there are plenty of shops and cafes in the immediate vicinity where you can relax or shop for awhile.
