Bremen’s protestant main church has origins in the 8th century and got its ribbed vaulting, chapels and two high towers in the 13th century. Aside from the imposing architecture, the intricately carved pulpit and the baptismal font in the western crypt deserve a closer look. For panoramic views, climb the 265 steps to the top of the south tower. A separate entrance leads to the church's Bleikeller , a cellar where open coffins reveal eight bodies mummified in the incredibly dry air.
