the unique church built on a rock, high above the River Lahn Valley, an impressive citadel upon the mountain, its seven main towers and the pitoresque portal facades have us feel respect. The rather modest outside, all in red and white, make it all the more impressive, first church here mentioned over 1100 years ago, that one we see nowadays was built 800 years ago, constructed to be the reincarnation of the New Jerusalem here in Europe, visible from all directions and at great distance, so everyone passing the Rhine Valley or the Autobahn from Cologne to Frankcort or viceversa, will not be able to avoid having an eye on it.
From the distance modest and clear, at the close look one of the richest and most impressive churches I ever met, you will be surprised how rich the interior is eqipped, decorated and painted, if fact one of the richest old churches in Europe.
If you happen to pass by, leave the Autobahn at Limburg North and go to the city center, easiest place to park the car is the next door storing place of the town of Limburg, only 500 yard by foot to mount up to the cathedral, just passing the surrounding medieval old town.
It always gives me great pleasure from time to time to pass and to have a quiet handful of minutes rest in peace up there, afterwards hurrying back to the Autobahn, back to the outer world.
Also to mention, Germans claim it to be the only European Cathedral named after St. George, the Patron Saint of England.
