Cathedral of St. Mary with Silbermann organs

One of the most beautiful hall churches in Saxony characterises the image of the Silver City of Freiberg. The exterior simplicity of the cathedral is in stark contrast to the rich interior decoration. The sacred art from different eras attracts tens of thousands of art and organ music lovers to the cathedral every year.

The oldest surviving organ by Gottfried Silbermann can be heard in church services, concerts and special cathedral tours. In addition, you can marvel at the restored electoral sepulchre with the Moritz monument (1563) and the music-making angels (1592/94) with the original Renaissance instruments. The Tulip Pulpit (1505) and the Miner's Pulpit (1638) bear witness to the deep faith and high artistry of their time. With the Golden Gate (1225) and the Triumphal Crucifix Group (1225), the cathedral houses two important sacred works of Romanesque art from the predecessor church, a Romanesque basilica.

Set out on a journey yourself and discover the treasures of Freiberg's St. Mary's Cathedral with its famous Silbermann organs.
