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

(4.3/5 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.

  • For the history lovers. The Cathedral is historical and beautiful but check out the museum. enjoy the scenery of the craftsmanship that it took to build this massive church 
  • Next Marktplatz, essential to visit and see the environment. Be sure to wander and get lost in the surrounding area.

  • You can find the mouse? Very nice invention of the builders. Tip: in the back of the DOM. Rest Church ok, but don't expect Berlin or Cologne Cathedral

  • 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.
