Welcome to the UNESCO-World Heritage Site of Naumburg Cathedral

The Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul in Naumburg is one of Europe’s most important cultural monuments from the high middle ages and is a major visitor attraction on the “Romanesque Route”. One of the cathedral’s most impressive features are the twin choir screens which separate the choirs from the nave. It is the only church in the world to contain two choir screens from the high medieval period!

The West Choir with its choir screen and 12 statues depicting the church’s donors, which date back to the mid-thirteenth century, forms the cathedral’s biggest attraction. Crafted by the Naumburg Master, the statue known as Uta is particularly special and is said to depict the “most beautiful woman of the middle ages”.

Vereinigte Domstifter zu Merseburg und Naumburg und des Kollegiatstifts Zeitz

This public foundation’s roots date back to the 10th century. The Vereinigte Domstifter (Combined Cathedral Chapters of Merseburg and Naumburg and the Collegiate Church of Zeitz) oversee the administration of both Naumburg and Merseburg Cathedrals, plus the Chapter Library in Zeitz and various other properties. Today, the foundation’s remit includes preserving its rich cultural heritage and promoting current services with benefits for society.

Merseburg Imperial Cathedral

The Cathedral’s foundation stones were laid 1,000 years ago by the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Germany Henry II and his wife Cunigunde, the only Emperor and Empress to be canonised. The bishopric of Merseburg gained widespread renown thanks to Bishop Thietmar who recorded European events of his time in a world-famous chronical. Priceless works of art transport visitors back to the middle ages. A number of organ recitals throughout the year, provides visitors to the Cathedral with the opportunity to experience the unique sound of the romantic-era Ladegast organ. The organ was chosen by George Clooney as the central element in the finale of his film “The Monuments Men”.

Zeitz Chapter Library

The chapter library in Zeitz hosts a large number of extraordinary treasures. The oldest and most important literary collection in Saxony-Anhalt includes items dating back to the middle ages and early modern period. It is unique to find so many historical items together in one place, and on display across several grand rooms. A life-sized statue of Bishop Julius Pflug welcomes visitors into his study.
