(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom), a Gothic cathedral, is one of the most iconic buildings of Bremen. Built in the 11th century, it has undergone a number of renovations and restorations over the centuries. Admire the grand architecture and look for hand-carved choir stalls from the 13th century. Descend into the crypt to see the lower portions of the walls and columns from the original building. The faint-hearted should skip the lead basement beneath the nave, which is home to eight mummies in glass-topped coffins. A visit to St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bremen vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • The large historic square am Markt collected the key sights of Bremen. Saint Peter's Cathedral was laid of about 1200 years ago. In the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries produced a different adjustment. The western façade with two towers with a height of about 100 meters was updated at the end of the last century. You can climb into one of the towers on the observation deck. Unfortunately, Windows platforms barred, so views do not have convenient prospect for photo and video shoots.

  • Powerful and intensive coloured interior. Reflects economical wellbeing of population and honoring of christian culture. Don't miss a surprising visit!
  • It is one of the most beautiful church I've ever seen, the colorful decoration are just splendid!
  • It's a beautiful church. We are visiting Bremen now and I am impressed by the fact how many historical places we found here. The English placards would be very much handy ;)
  • A real classic gem of the city and tourist attraction
  • The biggest and in my opinion most beautiful church in Bremen which is already about 600 years old.
