Exhibition: The Naumburg Master's
Career and Works

An exhibition on the upstairs floor of the west cloister allows visitors to the cathedral complex to relive the journey taken by the Naumburg Master from France to Germany. It reveals astounding insights into the work and career of one of the most extraordinary sculptural architects of the 13th century.

 

Priceless originals, artfully-created copies of the Bamberg Knight or the west choir screen in Mainz, model churches, capitals and manuscripts as well as 3D animations of colour reconstructions take you through particular features of the Naumburg Master’s work and his roots in French cathedral art.
