The cathedral on Rottenburg's market square forms the centre of the Swabian episcopal city, the centre of the parish of St. Martin and, above all, the centre of the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart.
Anyone who enters the church, which was reopened in 2003 after three years of renovation, through the simple main portal enters a sacred space of light. It bears witness to the heavenly light that Jesus Christ brought to the world in his incarnation and made shine once and for all in his supernatural splendour in his resurrection.
Therefore, St Martin's Cathedral can certainly be described as a place where heaven and earth touch.
Guided tours of the cathedral can be booked through WTG Tourist Information. Tel 07472-916236.
