List of cities in Germany Sightseeing Tours in Überlingen

1. Münster St. Nikolaus

Show sight on map

St. Nicholas Minster is the parish church of Überlingen on Lake Constance. The five-nave basilica was built between 1350 and 1576 in the late Gothic style. The furnishings of the largest late Gothic church building on Lake Constance include a carved altar by Jörg Zürn, a masterpiece of German Mannerism (1613–1616). The cathedral towers over the historic old town of Überlingen, especially through the high north tower. The semicircular square north of the church was a cemetery before 1530. South of the church stands the late Gothic town hall of the city, built in 1494, which already shows influences of the Italian Renaissance.
