St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom), Bremen
(4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice big Lutheran Church. Very well maintained. Worth a visit within. Has a separate nook to a candle on.

  • I know the Cathedral in Bremen before the restoration in the 70s. It was a gray slightly terrifying building. Thanks to the complete renovation (in which also the Bremen treasure was found) by the brilliant Restorer G. Skrypzak, this church to life shone. And at all: the modernization has very well done the DOM. Sometimes I just go and remain half an hour without reason. When I go out I'm just balanced. The Museum is not very well equipped, but I think it was not the sense of the thing, you have to consider the whole concept simply.

  • As all my other reviews have said this city is so full of history and was restricted by time but will be sure to return soon.

  • 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.
