Special guided tour with visit to the princely crypt

© Copyright by United Cathedral Founders, Falko Matte

Description:

The elaborately decorated coffins from the baroque period can be visited once a month.

Always on the last Sunday of the month, we take you down to the impressive princely crypt of Merseburg Cathedral. The three medieval chapels were built between the 13th and 16th century, but were only designated as the burial place of his house by Duke Christian I of Saxony-Merseburg in the 17th century. A total of 37 elaborately decorated tin and wooden coffins can be found here

They remind us that the cathedral was also used as a baroque court church and tell us a lot about the burial culture of the Wettin dynasty during the baroque period.

Due to the limited space available, advance reservation is recommended.
