Augustinian church of St. Peter, Petersberg

Conrad the Great (died 1156) of the House of Wettin built the collegiate church in 1127. The three-nave cruciform basilica was used by the House of Wettin as a sepulchral church.

It is built on a porphyry cliff, and was constructed of the same material. In the 16th century there was a fire at the church, which subsequently became derelict. It was rebuilt in 1853-1857.
