Beautiful, peaceful. The central cathedral of Erfurt is a marvel of medieval architecture. It sits majestically atop a long flight of stairs, displaying fluted pillars and flanks. The interior is lovingly maintained, and the beautiful windows permit the main hall to be flooded with sunlight. Most impressive is the choir, which is crafted entirely of carved wood. First and foremost, this is a place of contemplation and meditation. A home to prayer. I'm told, it is also a place of life and celebration, a structure where people meet.
Another cathedral. But it is an amazing gothic style cathedral. Worth a look.
