Meißen Cathedral

Enige feiten

The High Gothic cathedral of Meißen impresses with its fine proportions and forms as well as its equipment.

The Cathedral on the citadel hill of Meissen is a pure sacred building of the Mid-Gothic, even if its steeple topis from the beginning of this century. The construction was begun about 1240, the Prince`s Chapel with the tombplates from Vischer`s foundry in Nürnberg was built out about 1430. Founder figures from the Nürnberg workshop from about 1260 can also be found here, as well as the triptych „Mourning of Jesus Christ“ by Lucas Cranach the Elder.
