St. Peter zu Syburg

The church is the eldest sacral building in Dortmund. A predecessor building of the present church was already mentioned in a document 776.

The church is a foundation of Charlemagne and was consecrated in 799 by Pope Leo III.

The Church is surrounded by a graveyard, where the probably eldest tombstones of the Ruhr Area can be found, dating of 9th century. Inside the church a merovingian and two carolingian gravestones are kept and a romanesque baptismal font (12th century, from the Bartholomäus Church in Lütgendortmund).
