Regensburg Cathedral (Dom St. Peter)
The city's Gothic Cathedral of St. Peter was built from 1274-1520 on the site of a large
Romanesque church, some portions of which are integrated into the current
structure. The spires and upper portions of the towers are 19th Century
When the cathedral was cleaned a number of years
ago, it became possible to see two types of stone in the façade: a cream-colored
limestone and a softer green sandstone that was used for repairs and additions
in the 1800s. The green blocks are being replaced gradually with limestone from
the Czech Republic that matches the original material.
