Good prespective

Very beautiful, Anne. Wonderful angle, and I love the long shadows against the wall. The tower looks very dark and a little imposing. The overall effect is strong and mighty. Greetings, Ryan

I'm constantly amazed by the ornate decorative features found on buildings there. :)

Thank you, Lilypon. This is my favorite church in my hometown Münster. Greetings, Anne:)

Danke sehr für dieses Foto, Anne! Wegen einer Diskussion, die ich mit Ryan und Bruce hatte über unsere Bauweise, wechsle ich in die englische Sprache.

Ryan, isn't it amazing, that for us Europeans it's quite normal to live among buidlings, which had been constructed hundreds of years ago, like this one, which must be at least sixhundred years old? We can read the history of mankind in these towns with the narrow roads, lanes and angles. These towns all have their reason, why they had been built like this. :-) May

Die Lamberti-Kirche in Münster hat neben der imposanten Erscheinung auch eine dunkle Geschichte. Über der Uhr erkennt man drei eiserne Körbe, in denen die Leichen der Führer der Wiedertäuferbewegung im Jahre 1535 zur Schau gestellt wurden. Die Kirche selbst stammt aus dem Jahr 1375.


Gruß Gustl

Du hast Recht, Gustl, die Geschichte mit den Wiedertäufern stimmt. Die Käfige sind meines Wissens nicht die Originalkäfige (ob die überhaupt noch existieren, weiß ich nicht). Gruß, Anne

You really have some spectacular churches in Germany. I recently went up Ulm Minster. That is an amazing building. I cannot believe how the built such structures in Medieval times?

I come to Koln in 1 week for a trade fair. I will take my camera and see if I can picture the Dom.

Thanks, Rob! I also find it hard to imagine how it was possible to build such tall churches in those medieval times. The builders did a great job and many of them lost their lives on that job. Ulm cathedral is said to have the world's tallest church tower. The Cologne Cathedral is also very interesting and worth a visit. Greetings, Anne
