Inside the city’s beautiful Gothic cathedral, built between 1226 and 1335, is Barlach’s Schwebende Engel (Hovering Angel), created in 1926 to honor the victims of the first World War. Visitors can also check out many of Barlach’s works at his Atelierhaus (studio), which exhibits a great collection of his pieces.
