If you are in Schleswig, the altar piece (triptych) made by Brüggemann is a must. It is 6.5 metres tall and 7 metres broad, carved in oak and shows 16 themes from the Passion. The nearly 400 figures are very realistic and in great detail....More

Especially the wooden alter and some of the paintings make the cathedral a must for visitors. Every part/section of the alter displays a part of the bible where passion/Easter is in focus. Indeed, worth to study in details. You should bring a binocular to be...More

A typical German Dome with an amazing oak wood altar carved by Hans Brüggemann from 1514 to 1521. The altar depicting biblical history from Christ's arrest to Ascension is a masterpiece!

A fascinating cathedral with many interesting features such as an intricately carved altarpiece with carvings of the last days of Christ. If you are feeling energetic there are great views from the bell tower.

We visited to research family history and found an absolutely stunning location with many historical relics. This is a must visit if you're in the area. It's free to enter but there are regular requests for donations and a tour up the tower is extra.
