Speyer is a town in Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany with approximately 50.000 inhabitants. Located on the left bank of the river Rhine, Speyer lies 25 km (16 mi) south of Ludwigshafen and Mannheim, and 21 km (13 mi) south-west of Heidelberg. Founded by the Romans, it is one of Germany's oldest cities. Speyer Cathedral, a number of other churches and the Altpörtel (old gate) dominate the Speyer landscape. In the cathedral, beneath the high altar, are the tombs of eight Holy Roman Emperors and German kings.
