This small crypt is worth the couple euros charge - very unique - never seen such preservation of bodies. Creepy but interesting

Weird and spooky sight but also interesting , quite off-the beaten path. The mummies found during excavation works in the Cathedral are on display for those who fancy have a look at. Some line of text explains the history behind each of the mummy. There...More

One of the most amazing, yet creepy, displays I've ever seen. A must-see! The fact that this body was preserved just because of high lead in the immediate area is mind-boggling! I visited in 1990, but it's still on display.

The location itself is interesting enough, but they could really do more in terms of information. You can view a few well-preserved mummies at this location and read (very little) background information. All in all it's not really worth the price of admission, which is...More

For 1.40 Euros each, my husband & I viewed the mummified remains of 8 Bremen citizens. There was a 1-2 sentence explanation of each body but nothing beyond that. I left in less than 10 minutes with many questions. Why it is called the lead...More

A fantastic and interesting display of the mummified remains with the bodies' history (where known). A very affordable and unusual attraction. The display is creepy in an enchanting way. Certainly an excellent way to spend some time.

takes a little effort to find but worth it to view the mumified remains of the great and good of 17th century Bremen. This place was actually quite creepy and macabre and i was glad to visit it and equally glad tp leave it

Reviewed 22 November 2012

A must visit ... The corpses were mummified by the climate conditions of the crypt when burried. I've been in Cairo Museum in Egypt, therefore I had seen before mummies "artificially processed"... but this experience was in a sense "unique". Shocking! It took me a...More
