It is a three-aisled hall crypt consisting of three parts. It is the crypt of the first Naumburg Cathedral, which was built in the middle of the 12th century, 100 years after the construction of the first cathedral began. It still appears in its Romanesque form. Take a look, for example, at the typical Romanesque cubiform capitals above the compact simple columns! And above the capitals there is a typical Romanesque groined vault with high round arches. This eastern part and the western part of the crypt through which you came in, were added at the beginning of the 13th century. The crypt has therefore grown historically.
