Sisters and brothers live in the collegiate church of Petersberg from the year 1180

The former Augustinian canon's monastery on the Petersberg near Halle is considered to be a landscape-dominating and widely visible group of buildings enthroned on a porphyry rock with its dominating church. The Augustinian Canonry was founded in 1124 by the Wettin Count Dedo IV and completed by his brother Margrave Konrad von Wettin. Fires, in 1199 and last in 1565, largely destroyed the collegiate church. Until 1827 it was used to obtain materials for other building projects. Schinkel's interest as a Romanesque building gained special significance through Schinkel. Extensive reconstruction measures in the 19th century still characterize the picture today. An important aspect is the architectural-art historical significance of the monument as a three-nave Romanesque basilica on a cruciform ground plan. Also the landscape-forming role should not be forgotten, the landmark - standing on a porphyry rock - can be easily seen from afar.

The Petersberg currently has an annual number of visitors of about 50,000 people and the trend is rising. The monastery complex is actively used by groups and also individuals. Also important are the visitors who come from far outside the region. After the renovation and restoration of the medieval complex, visitors will be able to see a jewel that fits in gracefully with the Romanesque street. A jewel on the Petersberg is thus open to tourism.
