St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom), Bremen

4.4
#3 of 6 in Historic Sites in Bremen
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.

    We've looked at today the Bremen Cathedral and then stayed to MittagsGebet (12:00 12:15). While we got the chance to listen to one of the four organs then. A beautiful and also quite large church. And kept relatively simple for a Catholic Church. Fits into the picture of Bremen's old town and other venerable buildings trappings.

    The Cathedral of St. Peter in Bremen is presented to visitors imposing and severe in its Gothic style. Deserves a guided tour.

    The dom in Bremen you can not miss. A hearty robust Church, blackened by time with inside surprising liturgical scenes.

  • Beautifull church from the in and outside. However, the interior has been restored in such a way that you do not get the feeling you are in an old, historic building. Almost to well restored. For instance, the pillars in the midship of the dome show the grooves of the joints, but are actually painted-on.
  • It's a beautiful architecture. A must visit in Bermen. 😊😍👍🏽
  • Outside of the building is very beautiful. But the inside not so much. Obviously they didnt have a lot of money in 1950 to rebuild the inside of the church. However the outside really show the 2nd world war dammage
  • Impressive building! Interesting history! Walk around and take a look, try going inside!😇
  • Powerful and intensive coloured interior. Reflects economical wellbeing of population and honoring of christian culture. Don't miss a surprising visit!
