The interior of the cathedral has been Victorianised so the highlight dor us was climbing the tower and getting wonderful views of the city and surrounding countryside. The exterior is very striking especiaally when viwed from the Markt and the Caspar David Friedrich centre

It is a brick cathedral from the 14th century. Very impressive. Must see. Very nice and interested view from the tower. The cathedral had a couple of misfortunes like storm in the past. But still in very good condition
