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

(4.4/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Ok, it was a dark one very impressive the inside, I don't remember if it was ticket to go inside... .  more »
  • Gregarious Cathedral, inside and outside both worth to spend sometime. Very special colourful stones inside the Cathedral. The style of ceiling also different than most of churches. Very nice historic...  more »
  • The ticket covered both Tower and crypt, but it took a while to find the crypt when the garden entrance from another page. The view from the tower is definitely worth the trip up of all stair steps. However, you should choose a day when it does not blow too much.

  • 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.
