St. Petri Dom Bremen, Bremen, Germany
Construction first began in 787 and is still largely built of sandstone, and is still standing today. It is a three-aisled pillar basilica with two crypts above which choirs rise, dating back to the 11th century. In the thirteenth century, vaults, chapels and the construction of a double tower facade were completed. The conversion to a late-Gothic hall church came to a halt by the entry of the Reformation. After years of neglect, an extensive restoration was carried out from 1888 to 1901
