Churches in Germany
number of churches and monasteries in Europe is enormous. Also in
Germany. That's what you realise, when you are travelling just through
an area of around Fulda and the 'Rhön' to 'Mainfranken' around
Würzburg. In a large diversity of Romanic, Gothic, Barock, Rococo,
neo-romanic, neo-gothic style. Travelling through this area during a
midweek in October, it is impossible to see all the churches and
monasteries. You can find a lot of help in the so called 'HB-Bildatlasses'
and the 'HB-Kunstführer', describing the sightseeing things and art,
like churches, monasteries and castles etc. Yes, they are in German, but
also, yes, with beautiful photographs!!
Churches in Germany
Well, I made a separate page about 'churches in Germany', just because
the other main page 'churches and monasteries' would be to full with
albums. But I fear that after some years this new page also will be
filled with albums. We'll see.
September 2013 - three days in the northwestern region 'Ostfriesland'
where we visited fine, mostly small churches in romanesque end gothic
style. With altars, organs etc.
October 2013 again into the Northern region of Germany, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern eith the island Rügen. Again these brick gothic churches, mostly small but yet interesting. And the big gothic brick churches of Strralsund.
