Churches in Dortmund: St.-Petri-Kirche Nov 22, 2012
Petrikirche is the first church you'll encounter if you arrive by public transport because it is located very close to the central station. The gothic church was built in the 14th century.

Unfortunately I could not enter because like the other churches it is closed for a lunch break. If your timing is better than mine, walk in: This church contains a huge woodcarved altarpiece, made in Antwerpen in 1521, that shows the life and passion of Christ in 30 carved scenes and 54 paintings (information from my guidebook). This artwork is described as the largest Flemish altarpiece of the middle ages and surely worth seeing.

Opening hours are given on the website as: Tuesday to Friday 11.00-17.00, Saturday 10.00-16.00. However, I found it closed in the early afternoon with a sign: opens at 15.00.
