"A VT outing to a beautiful city" Speyer by toonsarah

Speyer Travel Guide: 348 reviews and 1,157 photos

Rooftops of Speyer

On the Friday of the 2008 Karlsruhe Euromeet, Ingrid (Trekki) organised a visit to nearby Speyer.

We had a great day out, and I really loved the city, though we only had a few hours there and weren’t able to see as much as I’d have liked.

My little page therefore won’t be able to do Speyer justice – for that you should visit Ingrid’s own page – but I couldn’t let the visit pass without capturing a little of what I saw and liked about this historic and peaceful town.


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of history, but plenty of present-day charm too
  • Cons:Not enough time to do it justice (our fault, not Speyer's!)

    Looks like a great time was had by all. Hoping to get over to Ingrid's corner of Germany someday soon and this taster has me very in the mood to go soon.

    What fun...to enjoy such an historic place with other VT members. Beautiful churches. As usual, your tips are reflective of the care you take with research and dedication to travel. Your insights are keen.

    What a beautiful Cathedral! Love the George & the Dragon statue, although to me, it doesn't look a lot like a Dragon! Nice page!
