A really fascinating Cathedral with some interesting modern stained glass. Particularly liked the large window picturing Adam and Eve and their apples.The mischievous looking serpent seemed to be telling Eve it was one of her " five a day". Other windows included a well crafted nativity scene with modern depiction and interpretation.( Photo will be our Christmas Card).

Its beautiful and free to visit. It's nice and cool on a warm day, it's peaceful inside and has beautiful stained glass windows. We were lucky to be there when a female vocal choir was practicing. we really enjoyed it. you can also go up into the tower and have a great view of the city. We didn't manage to... More

I needed a place to say a prayer and light a candle for my Mom while away in Bremen. I chose this church and so glad I did. It is beautiful and has a museum with some older pieces from the church as it's needed renovation through the years due to fire and age. It has a downstairs chamber for... More

Easily worth a visit if you are ever in Bremen. Tastefully restored although better on the outside. You can climb the tower for a fee although this is closed in the winter months.

The outside promises much, yet inside was a little disappointing. Obviously the place was rebuilt after being bombed in the war, but too much of it is faked, and the lighting is not good. Some of the stained glass windows are stunning, so it is worth visiting to see these.

The recent stained glass windows are stunning. The painted concrete columns and walls are a brave effort that almost works in the dim lighting. Considering the number of overseas visitors , very little translated material to guide you around. No booklet about the windows either.

This is one of the few churches that did not get bomb during the second world war. It is absolutely beautiful from the exterior and within the interior of the church. Located right in the town square and a minute walk from the Rathouse. Easy local transportation is available.

Grandiose. St. Peter's Cathedral flanks one side of the large city centre Marktplatz. With its twin towers, the cathedral dominates the city centre Marktplatz. Adjacent to the cathedral is the Town Hall. Many photos show the two massive structures side by side. Highly recommend visiting this beautiful, ornate cathedral.

Its a very beautiful cathedral. Its free to visit. Where the room of silence is a must if you need a moment of peace. Well worth a look.
