The French Cathedral (Französischer Dom) is one of the three buildings on the Gendarmenmarkt and across from the German Cathedral (Deutscher Dom). It was built by the Huguenot community early in 18th century and is the oldest building on the square. The other cathedral was destroyed during World War II and rebuilt after the German reunification as the square is located in the eastern part of Berlin.
The Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is part of the UNESCO World Heritage and is the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world. The building process started in 1248 and was completed in 1880. No landmark in Germany is visited as often as the Cologne Cathedral, I guess that’s also due to the fact that the Cologne Central Station is located right next to it, so that you can visit the Cathedral even when you only have an hour to spend in Cologne. On the photo you see the cross on the eastern side of the Cologne Cathedral. More information on the photo!
On a short trip to Bonn in the west of Germany we took a one day trip to Cologne. The days before were rather grey and not good to take any shots and I already got a bit frustrated. But when we took the train to Cologne, the sky started to clear up. I guess this sunset was my compensation for the weather before. More information on the photo!
Swidnica does not only offer the Church of Peace which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage but also another quite impressive Cathedral. This is the Curch of Saints Stanislav and Vaclav (Katedra św. Stanisława i św. Wacława w Świdnicy). It was built in 14th century and the 103m high tower is the biggest in Silesia. More information on the photo!
Wroclaw Cathedral (Archikatedra św. Jana Chrzciciela we Wrocławiu) seems to be one of the few buildings which actually look better from behind than from the front side. At least to me this mix of styles seems quite unique. I somehow wish I would have gotten a little bit more from it on the picture, but that was all my camera could give me and I couldn’t give it a wider angle because of obstacles.
