Discover the highlights of some 350 medieval treasures in the vast cathedral cloister. Pass the unique massive Heiltumsschrank, the choir doors and view the colourful shiny golden altarpieces in the chapter hall.

    The Romanesque tapestries in the carpet hall tell their stories in an impressive manner. The Abraham Angel Carpet from the 12th century is the world's oldest woven carpet. The colours have lost none of their luminosity.

    In the Liebfrauenraum (Room of our Lady) you can see the world famous Halberstadt Sitting Madonna, that dates from around 1220.

    Magnificent sacred vestments transform the Textile Hall in to a place that breathes history. A golden silk pluvial gown from the 12th century is one of the highlights. Pearl embroidered mitres, stockings, shoes, and rings show the splendour of clothing of both former bishops and priests.

    Especially popular with children are the Gießlöwe (Cast Lion) and the Wärmeapfel (Hand Warmers) in the vestry.

    The Byzantine Holy Bread Bowl is often referred to as the most precious piece of the treasure of the Cathedral. It has been used as early as the 11th century in the Court of Constantinople.
