Architecture

Built in the Brick Gothic style with red and brown bricks, the design of St Peter’s Church was largely based on St. Mary’s Church in Lubeck, Germany. A 345-foot- (105-meter-) high tower was added in the 15th century, together with several chapels and the baptismal font. The church is also Malmö’s oldest preserved brick building.
