Romanesque Basilica, built over the tomb of St. Kilian who, along with his companions, were murdered as missionaries anno 689. St Adalbero founded the Abbey of Neumünster in 1060 and the first canons of St. Stephan made their entry. The newly founded monastery got a two floors Church. 11th century choir, 13th century ornated Tower. 1710-1716 Huge dome and Baroque facade. 1788 Baroque interior (brothers Zimmermann), early stone work by Tilman Riemenschneider and a beautiful sandstone Madonna in a pillar niche of the dome. 1799 West-choir demolished. Secularisation 19th Century and monastery was abrogated, the Church was still used by fraternities. In 1945 bombing continued structually saved, interior burnt out for a major part, yet there are still some excellent individual works from the middle ages and Baroque.
