The Cathedral and its treasure

Medieval splendor at Halberstadt

Dom zu Halberstadt - Hauptschiff [(c): Mathias Kasuptke]

Halberstadt's French-style cathedral features typical highlights such as impressive pillars, airy vaults, ornate stonework, artistic carvings and light-flooded leaded windows. The moment they walk through its doors, visitors leave the hustle and bustle of life behind and immerse themselves in a world of peace, reflection and contemplation. Built between 1236 and 1491, the cathedral is considered to be one of the most beautiful Gothic church buildings in Germany.

The grand Cathedral Treasury, a unique trio of sacred textiles, extremely precious tapestries and holy relics, is unrivalled in terms of both its size and diversity. It is the pride and joy of the cultural landscape of central Germany. Other world-famous gems at the cathedral include the Abraham Angel and Charlemagne tapestries, but the ultimate jewel is without a doubt the treasury chamber.
