Exclusive tour with visit of the princely crypt
Always on the last Sunday of each month, we guide you down to the impressive princely crypt of Merseburg Cathedral. The three medieval chapels were built between the 13th and 16th century, but only in the 17th century were they turned into the burial site of Christian I of Saxe-Merseburg’s dynasty. In total, 37 detailed coffins made from tin and wood can be viewed here. They bear witness to the time when the cathedral was used as court church and tell a lot about burial costums of the House of Wettin during the Baroque period.
