The #Freiburg#Minster stands in the midst of the #Münsterplatz surrounded by the Vinothek Alte Wache, the Historical merchants‘ hall (Historisches Kaufhaus), picturesque cafes and the Museum of Urban History in #Wentzingerhaus . The construction of the minster lasted over 300 years - most builders never got to see the end result. Fortunately, it survived both World Wars and is now a cultural monument showing medieval art. In addition, the 116 meter high west tower was once called "the most beautiful tower on earth". On a tour of the cathedral, look out for the 91 individually designed gargoyles designed to keep evil demons away.

Once or twice a year I visit Rotherham. Back in the day Thursday was payday and the town that evening would be bursting with people walking through the streets on a pub crawl. It was a happy time. The town had everything you could ever want to buy, several department stores, shoe shops, tailors, food shops, big names. Tonight the place was almost deserted. A few bodies in doorways, a male prostitute on the high street propositioned me and most shops were empty. The shops that were still operating fell in to one of a few categories. Poundshops, gambling, pawn. The only other business that seems to be thriving is the council, but on what and what for I couldn’t say. The one spot of beauty was the Minster. Still to my mind one of the most beautiful and majestic of all parish churches. @rotherhamcouncil@rotherhamadvertiser#rotherham#minster#townscape
Beverley Minster is beautiful. I love old buildings and the details on this one were out of this world. We are having a lovely holiday visiting good friends seeing the sights, getting plenty of fresh air and drinking our weight in wine!! Good times.

The Ulm Minster is with 161,5m the tallest church in the world, but the Sagrada Família might catch up to it soon🇩🇪🏁🇪🇸
