This church has a very nice decoration and settings, it´s definitely a part of the To-Do list of Würzburg. I won´t spoil the history too much, as you may appreciate to discover/read it yourself inside.

Just a few steps from the Cathedral, this church is beautiful. The altars, the marble, the paintings, the ceiling, the cupola, all beautiful. Free to visit.

The Neumuenster is located directly next to the Cathedral, so it is an easy additional stop. Loved the inside of it and the murals and paintings.

The church is brilliant white inside which made it feel lovely and cool. There is plenty to see and you can't miss the dome. Make sure you see this whilst wandering around Wurzburg.

Located opposite St. Kilian's Cathedral, the Neumunsterkirche has an unmistakable pink baroque exterior with a double sided grey stone balustrade, the type often associated with fine mansions to access a garden area. We entered through a side door, but the main door with its balustrade, fronts a busy shopping area. At the top of the main door are stone sculptures... More

Who would have thought that a cathedral in Germany would be named for an Irish monk. Well here is the unexpected.
