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
The cathedral dominates the skyline of Regensburg and is visually wonderful inside. The place feels empty without pews, but the windows and stonework make the place quite wonderful to visit. Entrance.... more »
Amazing cathedral! Beautiful looking for far and huge inside. So much history here. Great place to relax and take a picture more »
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.
