Religious Site
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. Schwerin Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Schwerin Edition.

  • Majestic Cathedral in the style of brick Gothic is one of the oldest and biggest churches, existing in the Hanseatic cities. Although the present appearance and 117 metre-high steeple he took a relatively recently. The Cathedral looks fine from the artificial lake Pfaffenteich. We took a tour of the Cathedral and the city centre before heading to Shverinskomu Castle. And correctly done, otherwise we already have not returned to him.

  • 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._
  • 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 .
  • A very nice, three-aisled Basilica of brick. One of the largest and bedeutensden buildings of the brick Gothic style in Northern Germany. The 120m high tower was completed in 1893.
