Search Saint Kilian Cathedral:

Both the first church on the site, built in 787, and the second, built in 855, were destroyed by fire. The present cathedral was begun in 1040, finished 1075, rebuilt several more times, and finally consecrated in 1187. That church already had the strong cross lay-out still present today: a long nave with a high choir, the broad transept and the two narrow western towers. Remodelling continued periodically until the building collapsed in the fire bombing of Würzburg in 1946. Reconstruction, finished in 1967, replaced Baroque components with Romanesque. With a length of 103 metres, the cathedral is the fourth largest Romanesque basilica in Germany.
