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.

  • A Cathedral you have on your visit in Bremen should definitely. Is a beautiful and well cared for.

  • Hello. Couldn't go to pray for everything good, try to visit all the temples associated with the name of Peter. A beautiful and austere, conveniently located for exploring if you have to visit the historic centre of Bremen. Also recommend bypass quarter located behind it. All total.

  • Very interesting, and very welcoming church must especially learn before you go for the visit of the mummies in the crypt, it is not open every day of the week and months per year!

  • 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.
