Guided Tour (Please ask for the current tours)

During our regular guided tours of the Minster you will hear about the history of the former Cistercian abbey, its priceless medieval furnishings and those that have been added more recently.

Among other things, you will be shown the main altar (1300), cross altar (1360/1370), chalice cabinet (1310), candelabra of Mary (1280), choir stalls (mostly 14th century), burial places of the Dukes of Mecklenburg (13th - 20th century) and a scale model of the abbey.

For those wishing more detailed information, special guided tours are available (see the section on special guided tours).

Guided tours in German are given several times a day.

For guided tours in English, Swedish, French or Russian please contact us ahead of time to arrange an appointment, preferably by E-Mail.
