Notes on the Geography of Germany: Speyer Cathedral: Photo 3
With the fire of 1689, the Prince-Bishop of Speyer lost his palace and decided to rebuild 15 miles away at Bruchsal. The palace there is a Baroque monument, and so might this church have become. The west end was in fact rebuilt in a Baroque style about 1750 by the son of Balthasar Neumann, who had built the palace at Bruchsal. With more money, the whole church might have been so rebuilt. In the 1850s, however, Maximilian II had the west end redone again, this time in a neo-romanesque style. Heinrich Hübsch, the architect, introduced the polychrome stone, the statues over the entrance, and the gable.
