This was an impressive church from the outside and more intimate on inside than I expected based on its enormous size. I could see the towers from long distance and while one was under construction and surrounded by scaffolding, they were still an incredible landmark....More

The church is very imposing especially in the way the columns seem to go up for ever. There’s an interesting crypt chapel, a wonderful old decorated clock, and the Kaiser’s memorial, as well as the decorated side chapels. It was rebuilt after WWII but still...More

This church has double onion-shaped steeples, but when we arrived we found the two steeples covered in scaffolding and plastic. We were looking forward to visiting this church as the book said that it is the largest brick cathedral in northern Europe, and it was...More

Don't know the answer to this. St. Peter is a good idea if you had a good preparation like a lunch or breakfast. I personally did not like the very narrow balcony, It is quite a challenge to pass between two people. But the... More
