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
