All offers of the offeror
Havelberg Cathedral is a three-aisled basilica that was built in the 12th century AD.
The official name of the building is St. Mary´s Cathedral of Havelberg.
In German, it is referred to as “Havelberger Dom”, “Dom St. Marien zu Havelberg”, “Havelberger Dom Sankt Marien” or “St. Marien (Havelberg)”.
The structure is made of both natural stones and bricks.
The structure was originally built in the Romanesque style, but was later rebuilt in the Gothic style.
A special feature of the structure is its broad westwork. It was built in the manner of a Saxon-style westwork (in German: Sächsischer Westriegel), and has a ridge turret or flèche respectively on its roof top.
The interior includes, among other things, a rood screen with lateral choir screens, a rood cross with a sculptural group, choir stalls as well as a baroque high altar and a baroque pulpit.
The monastic buildings of a former chapter of Premonstratensian Canons are situated next to the actual cathedral. They are a coherent group of buildings.
Donations are meant to contribute to the preservation, restoration or renovation of the works of art and features existing in Havelberg Cathedral.
The support of projects from the field of science and research that are focused on these goals is included as well.
In addition, measures or facilities serving for visitor information or visitor orientation can also be supported.
