St. Petri Church Dortmund: Silence and wonder in the city centre
Oh my word. What a wonderful sight! You will indeed be amazed: The St. Petri Church has one of the greatest works of art in Dortmund that has survived from the Middle Ages: The Golden Miracle – a carved and gilded winged altar.
It really is a head-turner. Because, at a height of 5.6 m and a width of 7.4 m, it is a colossus. It is the largest Flemish altar of the Middle Ages and consists of two pairs of wings that can be opened and closed. The altar clearly forms the heart of this 14th century Gothic City Church.
