    The more than 900 years old cathedral Wurzen is an impressive monument and above all a house of worship full of life. In addition to the Sunday services, there are many concerts and special events. For art lovers offers a wide range of medieval art to the not uncontroversial equipment from the years 1930/31 by the sculptor Prof. Georg Wrba with the imposing crucifixion group. For hikers on the Jakobspilgerweg or the Lutherweg the cathedral is a stop where you can not get past. Lovers of music will find what they are looking for in the cathedral, as the cathedral offers a lively musical life with many demanding concerts, supported by the large Jehmlich organ.

    In the Reformation period, the closest cathedral building to Leipzig for almost 20 years kept hidden the bones of St. Benno of Meissen. The cathedral is open daily and houses works of art from late Gothic to modern times. There are also regular public tours and guided tours to order. The exhibition with drawings of German Romanticism can also be visited by appointment.

    The cathedral is the landmark of the city, and visible from afar. The first church of origin dates from the 12th century, and was built in Romanesque style. Extension buildings took place in the 13th and 14th century. From 1817-1818, the cathedral was altered in the Neo-Gothic style.
