NAUMBURG MAKES SATISFIED

Naumburg Cathedral –
UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Naumburg Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, now a Protestant church, was built largely in the 13th century. A magnificent monument, the Dom, as it is called, is best known for its life-like sculpture of Marchioness Uta of Ballenstedt, one of the most famous and beautiful women of the Middle Ages. Her likeness is considered a masterpiece of Gothic art in Germany. Along with Uta, the cathedral is home to 11 further statues, the slightly larger-than-life-size donor or founder figures (Stifterfiguren). Another highlight are the cathedral windows, which include works by Leipzig artist Neo Rauch (*1960) in the chapel dedicated to St. Elisabeth. The Naumburg Cathedral was officially designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2018.
