Description

This hall church, characteristic of the Late Gothic, was built in the late 15C to replace the Romanesque cathedral. The pulpit (1505), the shape of which calls to mind the corolla of a tulip, is a masterpiece of sacred art; triple-keyboard organs by Gottfried Silbermann have 45 stops and 2 674 pipes; the eight-arched gilded doorway from the old church and the 16C mortuary chapel are in the Mannerist style.
