(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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!
