General information

More than 30,000 visitors - at peak times even 50,000 - come to the Dom-Museum every year. A rich treasure of medieval finds from the tombs of Bremen's archbishops awaits them here. These are silver and gold utensils as well as valuable silk textiles that have lain in the bishops' tombs for up to 900 years and still retain their beauty and lustre today. Textile researchers described these remains of silk bishop's vestments as sensational when they were found in the 1970s. In addition, the recently uncovered medieval wall paintings, the historic altar furnishings of the cathedral and the valuable paintings, above all a life-size "Man of Sorrows" by Lucas Cranach the Elder, are shown and explained.

Tourist highlights

Bible Garden - On the south side of the cathedral is the Bible Garden, where you can view plants of the Bible and monastic medicine. Like an oasis, the Bible Garden offers peace and quiet in the midst of the metropolitan hustle and bustle.

In the summer months from April to October, the cathedral also offers you two special sights:

Tower ascent - the south tower can be climbed via 265 steps. Not only does this offer a wonderful view over the old town, you also have the opportunity to see one of the cathedral bells up close.

Bleikeller (Lead cellar) - In the 18th century, to great astonishment, human corpses were discovered in a crypt of the cathedral, mummified by desiccation. The so-called lead cellar mummies are fascinating to this day and make us aware of the finiteness of all earthly life.
