Bremen St. Peter’s Cathedral


Visit the striking landmark of Bremen

Bremen’s St. Petri Cathedral is considered one of the city’s landmarks and dominates the Hanseatic city’s market square alongside the town hall. A visit to the cathedral museum or the lead cellar with eight mummies in open coffins is just as worthwhile as a climb up one of the over 90-metre-high towers. After the first wooden cathedral was built on the same site in 789, it changed its face many times over the centuries following frequent destruction. In the 11th century, a three-aisled basilica was built, which is reminiscent of the cathedral’s present structure. After the Thirty Years’ War and the Second World War, the church was extensively restored.
