Sankt Petri Kyrka

Lonely Planet review for Sankt Petri Kyrka
This red-brick Gothic beast is Malmö’s oldest church, built in the early 14th century. Protestant zealots whitewashed the medieval frescoes in 1555, but the original wall-paintings in the Krämarekapellet (inside at the rear of Sankt Petri Kyrka) have been successfully restored. There’s a magnificent altarpiece dating from 1611 and a votive ship in the south aisle, dedicated to all who died at sea in WWII. Much of the church has been rebuilt; the 96m tower went up in 1890.
