Museum at St. Peter’s Cathedral
The Museum at St. Peter's Cathedral has six historical rooms containing excavated finds from medieval bishops' graves and religious works by artists such as Lucas Cranach.
The Cathedral Museum opened in 1987. The ground floor presents a sequence of photos illustrating the 900-year architectural history of St. Peter's Cathedral, as well as medieval wall paintings and stone sculptures.
On the upper floor there are finds from eight medieval bishops' graves, which were discovered during archaeological excavations in the cathedral in the 1970s: the episcopal insignia of staff and ring along with silver chalices and patens as well as a number of mitres and bishops' vestments from the 11th to the 15th century. Also on display are pieces of historical altar silver (15th to 19th century), several religious paintings, including 'Man of Sorrows' by Lucas Cranach the Elder and items on loan from the Catholic parish of St. Johann.
