Schwerin Cathedral, Schwerin

4.5
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 is a small city, but it was a half-day tour. Schwerin in Schwerin Castle in front of the Park, walk wonderfully, the Saints also liked it ^ ^

  • For my Schwerin visit have I taken the time and viewed the Gothic Cathedral from the 14th century. The imposing building should be visited in any event with a guided tour to the values of all knowledge to learn.

  • The Cathedral is the oldest building in the city. Many disasters and wars have left their marks, however this huge structure, which began in the end of the 12th century, stood firm. The largest temple in Northern Germany up to one hundred and twenty metres in height. In order to complete this massive construction, it took nearly three hundred years.

  • 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.
  • A very beautiful Roman architectural church! There are so many things to see inside... The tower can be climbed on foot for a pseudo-panaromic view of Schwerin. Definitely worth a visit. This church is visible from ong distances when you stp out of the main station.
  • Quiet worship place. But a little to Cold.
  • 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 .
