In the heart of Aachen (Aachen), inside the cathedral, is the famous Palatine Chapel (790-805), created at the time of the Holy Roman Empire (Charlemagne). It is funny to see a monument that we have only seen in art books and textbooks. And equally impressive is that it is twice as big as I thought. A small place but very impressive.
Freiburg Cathedral is one of the largest and most beautiful monuments in the entire city. Its construction lasted for centuries and has a clear mixture of architectural styles, the highlight of which undoubtedly is on the outside, the tower that measures approximately 116mm high and the inside of which is beautiful, but what we most liked were its windows. You can also climb the tower, the only thing is only you have to be physically fit because it is so high ..
I went there a few days ago and, of course, went up the bell tower. It's sooooo high that I almost didn't make it, the stairs are endless. Definitely not for people ve suffer from heart problems, asthma, or knee problems. I am more or less in-shape and almost did not get there. But really, it's worth it .... It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Despite the fatigue of getting there, it is worth it to see the city from the tower. I recommend going, it really is one of the wonders of the world!!!
Hofkirche or Cathedral of Holy Trinity Cathedral is a Catholic Cathedral in the old town of Dresden. This huge Baroque church is constructed in sandstone (like almost everything in this city), its nave is 52 meters long and 18 meters wide, with a height of 32 meters, the tower reaching a height of 86 meters. The building has three naves, and inside we note that over the balustrade surrounding the ship, are figures of saints 78 3,50 m high sandstone sculpted also, by Lorenzo Mattielli. In addition we find a Permoser Balthasar Baroque pulpit, an altar of Anton Raphael Mengs, and the largest organ of Gottfried Silbermann. Next to the bowl with the heart of Augustus the Strong, is the crypt with the sarcophagus of the Wettin dynasty.
Situated on the main square stands the Cathedral of the city of Bonn, Bonn Minster. With a late Romanesque facade, inside the building there are elements of Gothic and Romanesque styles, but the decoration is mostly Baroque. From my point of view is prettier from the outside than inside. An unmissable visit if you go to Bonn.
St. Hedwig's is Berlin's Roman Catholic Cathedral on Bebelplatz, at the end of the beautiful Unter Den Linden. It was built in the eighteenth century by the Prussian Frederick the Great and the inauguration was in 1773. The cathedral is named after the patron saint of Brandenburg, St Edwig of Silesia. It's famous for its open position in favor of the Jews just before the ascent to power of the Nazis. Bishop Lichtenberg was taken to jail by the Nazis for having prayed for the Jews and was killed in a field, his remains are buried in the cathedral. It completely burned down in 1943, during an aerial bombardment by the Allies, and was rebuilt in the 50s.
The Frankfurt Cathedral is right smack in the city center and its tower rises to 95 meters. You can go there from April to October. This cathedral dates back to 852 and 10 chancellors have been crowned there. See what you learn when you travel? ;-) It also has a museum with treasures like a Gothic chasuble golden monstrance 1350 or 1720.
A Gothic style cathedral, with unequal towers, the more striking because it is the only dark building in a village, [poi = 81468] Meissen [/ poi], dominated by pastel houses. Located next to the Palace of Albrechtsburg, which is surrounded by seven figures, representing, among others, the Empress Adelheid and Emperor Otto I. Construction began in 1250, but construction of the west towers did not begin until the fourteenth century and were not properly finished until sometime between 1904 and 1908. Worth paying the entrance fee(do not remember the exact price, about 5 euros) to look inside, to admire the stunning columns that seem to reach to infinity.
In the ninth century there was a great lack of faith in Paderborn and the Bishop of Paderborn Madurad struggled to get the remains of a holy intercessor as people needed relics. Alderich Bishop of Le Mans gave the Bishop of Paderborn the relics of St Liborio who was Bishop of Le Mans who died on July 23, 397. According this legend, a Peacock flew in front of the relics as they were transported to the church, then perched on top of the Cathedral of Paderborn. Not only this, but the bird then entered the procession with the relics of the saint. Then, on the day of Pentecost in the year 836, it fell dead from the roof. You will now find Peacock relics everywhere as you walk around this city.
Dedicated to St. Peter, is a church situated in the market square in the center of Bremen, in northern Germany. The cathedral belongs to the Bremian Evangelical Church, a member of the Protestant umbrella organization named Evangelical Church in Germany.

The French Church of Friedrichstadt (Franzosische Friedrichstadtkirche) was built in this square, one of the most beautiful in Berlin, 1701-1705. It's the church of the Protestant Huguenots ve fled from France to Berlin. In 1786, as part of the reform of the Gendarmenmarkt, it's impressive tower was opened. The cathedral was badly damaged during World War II and rebuilt in 1977.
In the southern Black Forest, in the town of St. Blasien with its 4100 inhabitants, there is something that particularly caught my attention, the St. Blasien cathedral with one of the largest domes in Europe. Located at the foot of Mount Feldberg, this is a majestic baroque church that occupies the site of a medieval monastery founded in 858 by hermit monks. The current cathedral was built between 1771 and 1783, was inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, and is considered a masterpiece of early classicism. You can already see the spectacular dome even before reaching St. Blasien. The interior is also really great. It comprises twenty pillars that support the huge dome adorned with a fresco, the third largest in Europe. Large windows collect sunlight and cast it in every corner of the church forming a clear, open space, similar to heaven in the Baroque paintings.
The Cathedral of Regensburg is a precious jewel of Gothic architecture, with its beautiful stained glass windows. On one of its columns, there is an angel smiling. For me, it is always a joy to go to a Gothic church. In fact, I organize many trips according to the Gothic architecture I can see. I highly recommend the place.
