Limburg Cathedral

Reviewed By JJfromtheEast - East Lothian, UK

Well worth the climb us from the Old Town. Great views over Limburg & surrounding areas. A very peaceful place in which to spend half an hour or so.

House of the Seven Deadly Sins

Reviewed By Robby G C - Toronto, Canada

While we were walking we encountered an unusual half-timbered home dating from the 16th century, called the House of 7 Deadly Sins. That house is decorated with many strange sculptures on its facade, illustrating the 7 deadly sins, which are: Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth.
It’s quite unique! At first I thought I wouldn’t want to live in this house, but as I kept on looking at it, I found it quite attractive. I got used to it. If I lived here, I never would have to give directions to my home! That’s certainly a bonus!

Burg Limburg

Reviewed By gentbrugg - Moscow

Limburg is known mainly for its half-timbered buildings. However, the city also has its own castle. It stands on a cliff behind the Cathedral. It is not a tourist object, because it houses some urban services (e.g., archive). Initially, city authorities planned to sell it to a private investor, but then abandoned this idea. Although the castle is in some places considerably ruined and needs restoration. However, the castle undoubtedly makes its significant contribution to the creation of the city aura.

Bischofliches Haus

Reviewed By Gyuri123 - Oslo, Norway

Looks nice, but I think, there are more interesting houses in the old town of Limburg, although you almost for sure will see this one, as it is right in the front of the Cathedral.

Statue of St. John of Nepomuk

Reviewed By Corina C - Toronto, Canada

Considered the patron saint of Bridges, the Statue of St. John of Nepomuk is frequently found in Central Europe (Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Poland). The one in Limburg is located on the old bridge with a beautiful view of the Lahn river and Limburg Cathedral. Great photo opportunity.

Werner-Senger-Haus

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

It is a very beautiful timber frame house, one of the most popular historical attractions of Limburg. It is reportedly nearly eight hundred years old. Behind the 13c facade there is a nice restaurant. Not to be missed.

Werkstadt

Reviewed By P C - Frankfurt, Germany

It's a nice place - really. There are fast food opportunities - and from what I've sampled, these are ok. The range of shops is pretty much as you'd expect. It's a nice place to wander through but don't plan a half-day visit; there's not enough for that. Parking can be tricky at peak times.

Historische Altstadtfuehrung

Reviewed By Hocico - Frankfurt

So viele Fachwerkhäuser wie in der Altstadt von Limburg auf einen Platz zu haben, ist schon sehr selten und sehr sehenswert. Dazu dann noch der Dom. Die Führung haben wir leider verpasst, wollen wir aber dann beim nächsten Mal machen. So haben wir uns zunächst einmal alles angesehen - und freuen uns schon darauf beim nächsten Besuch mehr zu erfahren.

Walderdorffer Hof

Reviewed By gentbrugg - Moscow

Limburg is a triumph of half-timbered framing. Here is 8 of the 20 oldest half-timbered houses in Germany, including the first. But there are stone houses of venerable age. For example, such as Walderdorffer estate of mid-17th century. Now it is the city museum. However, in the courtyard of the museum-estate also features a half-timbered elements.
However, it has more sense to watch in Limburge half-timbered houses - with all due respect to stony. Even such honored, with coats of arms on facade.
