Sightseeing Tours in Überlingen

1. Münster St. Nikolaus

Show sight on map

The Cathedral of St. Nicholas is the parish church of Überlingen on Lake Constance. The five-aisled 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 mainly due to its high north tower. The semicircular square north of the church was a cemetery before 1530. South of the church is the town's late Gothic town hall, built in 1494, which already shows influences from the Italian Renaissance.
