at the Unesco World Heritage Site Naumburg Cathedral

Naumburg Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul is one of the most important cultural monuments from the time of the European High Middle Ages and is the visitor magnet on the "Romanesque Road". On July 1, 2018, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, making it the youngest of six astonishing World Heritage Sites in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

The impressive overall ensemble of Naumburg Cathedral, with its medieval cloister, the cloister buildings, the adjacent Church of St. Mary and the almost one-hectare cathedral garden, offers exceptional opportunities for conferences and celebrations in a historic setting. The embedding in a dreamlike cultural landscape with numerous other sights, the convenient location as well as the proximity to the university towns of Jena, Halle and Leipzig make Naumburg an attractive place for cultural and scientific events.

In the cloister and the cathedral garden, your event participants can be welcomed in a very special atmosphere and find relaxation during the conference breaks.

The redesign of the meeting rooms was sponsored by:

      

Seminar room Petrus

Our seminar rooms, named after the two dompatrons Peter and Paul, are located in the south cloister of Naumburg Cathedral above the historic cloister. From the 13th century until 1950, the rooms of the venerable cathedral school (schola cathedralis) were located in this cloister wing. Since its foundation in the 11th century, the school has been one of the oldest scholastic institutions in Germany and continues to exist today as a cathedral high school.

In its present form, the Petrus Seminar Room dates back to a generous reconstruction of the cathedral school in the early 19th century, when it was expanded to become the school library, which at that time already contained several thousand volumes. Even today, precious bookcases house bibliophilic treasures that point to a tradition of centuries of scholarship. However, a wall medallion preserved from the 16th century depicting the two dompatrons Peter and Paul proves that the room must be much older.

Seminar room Paulus

Our seminar rooms, named after the two dompatrons Peter and Paul, are located in the south cloister of Naumburg Cathedral above the historic cloister. From the 13th century until 1950, the rooms of the venerable cathedral school (schola cathedralis) were located in this cloister wing. Since its foundation in the 11th century, the school has been one of the oldest scholastic institutions in Germany and continues to exist today as a cathedral high school.

Today's seminar room Paulus, which was used as the director's room of the cathedral school from the early 19th century until the middle of the 20th century, has an integrated kitchenette (including refrigerator, microwave, ceramic hob and sink) and can thus be rented both as a pure seminar room and as a supplementary room for catering during breaks.

Cathedral Church of St Mary

The Church of St. Mary at the Cathedral, whose origins can be traced back to the 12th century, was once the parish church in the Naumburg Cathedral Freehold. In 1532, a devastating fire reduced the church to rubble. Only the east choir had escaped the flames and survived the time as a ruin.

It was not until the end of the 19th century that St. Mary's Church was reconstructed in pseudo-Gothic architecture. The new building initially served as an assembly hall and gymnasium for the cathedral high school, which, following historical tradition, was located in the enclosure, until it moved out in 1953. Equipped with a heating system at the beginning of the 20th century, the cathedral congregation also used the Marienkirche as a winter church during the cold season.

In the course of the preparatory work for the state exhibition "The Naumburg Master. Sculptor and Architect in the Europe of Cathedrals" (2011), the church was extensively redesigned and has since been available to the public for church services and as an event space.

The bright and friendly Marienkirche is equipped with a powerful daylight projector, a laptop as well as an integrated sound system and offers with its size and equipment the best conditions for meetings with up to 185 people.

suitable for: Meetings, lectures, seminars, standing receptions
Size: 180 m²

Cathedral Garden

Directly behind the west choir is the tree-rich park, where the native flora of the Saale-Unstrut region is effectively presented. There, where blooming nature unites between the gardens of former canons' houses and historic bastions, you will find the perfect setting for your open-air event.
