Special guided tour on the occasion of the return of the Merseburg cathedral treasure

In the middle of the 18th century, a large part of the Merseburg cathedral treasure was transferred to Dresden as part of the electoral collection. For the consecration anniversary, selected pieces from the Dresden State Art Collections will return to Merseburg. Among the treasures are magnificent mitres such as the mitre of Bishop Friedrich II von Hoym, which is elaborately embroidered with the patrons of the cathedral, Laurentius and Johannes.
