Schwerin Cathedral, Schwerin

4.5
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Schwerin
Seventy-six years in the making, Schwerin Cathedral was erected in 1248. A jewel thought to contain a drop of Christ's blood is displayed on the altar, leading thousands to make a pilgrimage here for many years. Although the foundation of the church was laid in the 13th century, many additions were added to the structure in the 15th century, including the nave and cloister.

  • Great cathedral, beautiful architecture. But inside pustovat, there is a little bit of old paintings, gravestones and stained-glass Windows, probably new.

  • Beautiful stained glass windows. The tower is worth a visit, view is really good. The tower costs 2€ and there are 219 steps, no elevator. But if you like high places and a good view, it's worth it. They also have brochures about the church history in several languages. The church closes quite early (at three on a Sunday) so check the times before you go.
  • Good architecture but for the size of it, too close to other buildings. Interesting interior. There are 220 steps leading up to the highest point of the tower (117.5 meters). It is really worth the effort when you can enjoy the stunning view of Schwerin and the nearby lakes._
  • Gorgeous church!!!
  • I spend one month în Schwerin and i visit this cathedral and the castel of Mecklenburg . All is full of history and the building have great arhitecture .
