St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), Malmo

4.3
Marvel at the simplicity of St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), a large house of worship built in the Gothic style in 1319. The grand brick exterior is complete with a 105 m (344 ft) tower and surrounded by stone carvings. In contrast, the interior features simple white walls that enhance the ornate fixtures and altar. One section of the ceiling has been restored to the original painted mural. As the oldest building in the city, the church provides a haven for quiet retreat. An informational pamphlet is available at an additional cost.

    A great church building from the 1300 century in Central Malmö, 200 m from the main square. Copper roof is renovated. Open every day 10-18.

    A very beautiful church inside, hoping to one day get the Council to produce the old kalkmaleriere, you see a bit of them on the left side of the nave when one enters

  • The Sankt Petri Church is a large church in Malmö. Construction started in 1319. It is built in the Gothic style and has a 105-metre (344 ft) tall tower.
  • Classic church with a lot of history. For those used to churches with beautifully painted ceilings you might feel dissapointed but try to get behind that.
  • A very beautiful church from an architectural point of view and with a rich historical value.
  • Beautiful architecture. Outside seems like very old building. I think its the only catholic church in down town malmo.
  • I always liked churches that don't charge you admission.
