Atop the hill, this imposing Gothic cathedral was built by German knights in the 13th century, rebuilt in the 15th century, despoiled during the Reformation in 1525, used as a barn, and partly rebuilt between 1804 and 1807 to house the university library, which is now the Museum of University History . Inside you’ll find a range of exhibits, from a reconstructed autopsy chamber to displays chronicling student life. Start at the top and work your way down.
