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

4.5
#3 of 10 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.

  • While one can easily wander this beautiful church alone, one would miss a big part of the impressive history of the place. While there are guided tour available, I would strongly suggest - especially ...  more »
  • Saint Peter's Cathedral may well be called the business card of Bremen. His community is impressive, very beautiful and majestic. Inside most liked the stained-glass Windows. You can walk and consider it quite long. On one of the towers is an observation worth 2 euro, works with 10 till 16.30. Climb the narrow foot need to screw down the stairs, but views from there not very impressed, because everything is double mesh, even photos really don't do. But it is the only lookout in Bremen. If you stand facing the Church, to the right of it is interesting garden planted all the plants mentioned in the Bible, is quite interesting, free admission, there are benches, on a hot summer day you can relax

  • This Evangelical church located in the market square of Bremen is just amazing. The original structure dates from the VIII Century. The oldest parts of the original building date from the XI century. Take your time to visit one of Bremen's jewels. It has been protected since 1973.
  • Set between the Rathaus and the State Parliament, the impressive cathedral of Saint Peter completes the ensemble of historical buildings on Bremen's old market square. Its two towers, one of which is open to visitors, are visible from afar and dominate the city skyline. Unfortunately, due to the opening hours, we were not able to visit the interior.
  • It's a beautiful church in the countryside. With two towers rising in the sky acting as sentinels protecting the heritage. Inside is beautifully decorated walls and ceilings.. it's a wonderful experience.
  • A must see place Dom in Bremen.. the inside is very artistic and full of details.
  • Beautiful church from outside it looks old . it was closed when we arived there . may be later I will get to go inside.
