Erfurt St. Severi Church

Erfurt St. Severi Church


Landmark on the Domberg

The Domberg is an absolute tourist attraction: together with Erfurt Cathedral, Erfurt’s St. Severi Church forms a very special architectural ensemble. The Gothic design of the Catholic church is considered very unusual, as it was a precursor of the late Gothic hall church. A highlight of the church is the sarcophagus, worth seeing, in which the bones of the church patron Severus of Ravenna rest. The air raids on Erfurt during the Second World War destroyed in particular the roofs and glass windows of the church as well as the Bonifatius Chapel and neighbouring houses. In the period from 1970 to 1995, Erfurt’s St. Severi Church was then extensively restored.
