REGENSBURG, Germany — The Regensberg Cathedral is considered the most significant work of Gothic architecture in southern Germany and is home to the largest free-hanging organ in the world. On Sunday mornings the organ with its 5,871 pipes is played during services. It is one of the most amazing sounds I’ve heard in a church. A solemn Mass with the cathedral choir is celebrated on Sundays and holidays at 10 a.m.

First documented in Regensburg in the early eighth century, the cathedral has undergone many transformations. It is famed for its medieval stained-glass windows, especially the figure of St. Peter, the cathedral’s patron saint, located in the south transept, dating from 1320-30. Guided tours of the cathedral, its treasures (10 centuries of goldsmith objects and textiles), and its museum (exhibiting sacred art from the 11th century to the present), are available daily. $5.50.
