Schleswig Travel Tip:
The altar, carved by Hans Brüggemann from 1514 to 1521 is the cathedral's main attraction
Schleswig Cathedral, officially the Cathedral of St. Peter at Schleswig, is the main church of Schleswig and was the cathedral of the Bishop of Schleswig until the diocese was dissolved in 1624. It is now the church of a Lutheran bishop and ranks among the most important architectural monuments of Schleswig-Holstein. The foundation stone of this impressive building was laid in 1134. Schleswig’s cathedral is famous above all for its three-wing Bordesholm Altar – a masterpiece by Hans Brüggemann – and the Schwahl cloister. It’s also well worth visiting the viewing platform where you look out from a height of 65 metres.
