Description

We’ll leave on foot for a guided tour of Worms and its cathedral. Being the oldest city in the whole of Germany, Worms has played a key role in German history. Today, it’s a lively chemical and metal industrial center. It's also known for its famed Liebfraumilch wine. We’ll visit the inside of the Cathedral of Saint Peter, a basilica with four round towers, two large domes and a choir at each end. Mostly built between 1125 and 1181, it is considered one of the finest examples of High-Romanesque architecture. One of its most impressive elements is the high altar, designed by Balthasar Neumann, a famous 18th- century German architect. The gilded wood and marble Baroque altar is a powerful work of art in itself. After our tour, enjoy some free time before returning at your own pace to the ship.
