900 years distinctive architectural style for a unique region

Since the 12th century, building with bricks has been a popular way of building buildings in northern Europe. The first buildings thus belong to the brick romance, until the brick Gothic in the 16th century passed into the brick renaissance.

Typical of this style is the absence of any figurines or sculptures, as this was not possible with bricks. Masonry ornaments or special structuring of surfaces with the help of red and glazed bricks or whitewashed wall surfaces nevertheless made it possible to give the brick Gothic a little more abundance and beauty.

Many cities, which are particularly characterised by brick buildings as well as individual buildings of this style, are now partly also UNESCO-world Heritage sites.

Bad Doberaner Münster

Since the 13th century, the former Cistercian monastery has probably been the most important figurehead of Bad Doberan. Today it is an Evangelical Lutheran church, but only since the middle of the 16th century. During the whole year, in addition to the normal services, Münster tours as well as various Münster concerts and organ meditations are also offered.


So why not directly combine the Mollifahrt with a visit to the cathedral? This tour promises to revive the time of bygone days. Or you can use regular regular services (bus line 121) to get to Bad Doberan and back to Kühlungsborn.
