If you are in Schleswig, the altar piece (triptych) made by Brüggemann is a must. It is 6.5 metres tall and 7 metres broad, carved in oak and shows 16 themes from the Passion. The nearly 400 figures are very realistic and in great detail....More

A fascinating cathedral with many interesting features such as an intricately carved altarpiece with carvings of the last days of Christ. If you are feeling energetic there are great views from the bell tower.

We visited to research family history and found an absolutely stunning location with many historical relics. This is a must visit if you're in the area. It's free to enter but there are regular requests for donations and a tour up the tower is extra.
