A small selection of the most important attractions:
An ideal place to relax and recover during the summer months is the beer garden of the "Alter Hammer", located directly on the Rhine, to be reached by a leisurely stroll under the shady trees of the cathedral garden. Traditionally "the" meeting place in Speyer on hot days. This is where half of the inhabitants meet in the evening. Do not be late or try to make a reservation.
You can find the other "half of Speyer" in the beer garden of the "Domhof" near the cathedral. Again, it is usually very well attended. If possible, you should book here, too. By the way: from here it is just a comfortable 300 metres stroll through the Old Town home to "The Hidden Home".
And pure summer feeling: The "Rheinstrand" - the beach bar in Speyer close to the Rhine. With sand, deck chair and pina colada. More chilling is hardly possible. Pass the "Alten Hammer" and turn right. After 200 metres along the Rhine.
Parking in Speyer
In downtown Speyer, and especially in the old town, there are - like in other cities - problems with parking the cars. You don't normally need a car for your stay in Speyer, as most of the sights are within walking distance. You live very centrally in "The Hidden Home". It is therefore advisable to park the car in one of the parking garages after unloading the luggage. At some this is possible for a daily price from 2.50 €.
There is ample parking space on the large “Festplatz” signposted as a parking lot below the cathedral. From there it is only a few minutes' walk through the cathedral garden to the cathedral. The day ticket costs 3 €.
The closest parking garages / parking lots are at the Sparkasse, Kornmarkt or Finanzamt (only at night).
But often you will find a parking space in the surrounding streets or even free of charge at Eselsdamm, about 250m away.
A dynamic parking guidance system shows the way to 23 car parks in the city centre.
With the city tarif of 1.10 € for a day ticket on the bus lines 564, 565 and 568, you are mobile in the city center from the train station to the cathedral, Bademaxx and Technik Museum and beyond.
