Speyer

Speyer Cathedral should, as one of the largest cathedrals in Europe, be full of Green Men, but it has lost nearly all of the original carving. The other churches in the town are also relitively modern and lacking in Green Men.
 

Dom zu Speyer

 
Not a benign image. The carvings on the front of the cathedral date from 1900 and indicate things not to be brought into the house of God. Green Animal. Also dating from 1900
A further Green Man image on the outside front of the cathedral. More benign than the other one. Not a Gren Man but an example of of the few remaining medieval carvings on the cathedral.
A Green Animal inbetween winged beasts. Lovely Green beast
