An attractive view of the city of Speyer on the left bank of the River Rhine between Mannheim and Karlsruhe. Founded by the Romans it is one of the oldest in Germany. The Cathedral dominates the skyline and hosts the tombs of eight German kings and Holy Roman Emporers. In the foreground is a fabulous image of a barge crossing the river containing a horse drawn carriage.
