    A last look to the nave from the Holy Shrine, (Main picture) then we can continue the visit , going through a door at the eastern side, and go to visit a cloister separating the cathedral from the Holy Lady Church (Liebfrauenkirche), erected in early gothic style, in the 13th century. Modern angels walk around in the square cloister yard (picture 2). The third picture shows the Lady’s church, and you can walk past huge statues of saints and apostles in the alley surrounding the square (picture 4). And you also can have a look at the Cathedral, and the bell towers where you notice the superimposed construction styles from different periods (picture 5)
    Be prepared to spend some time when visiting these places, it is a bit strange, all these styles, and the high middle age sculptures are really worth some long stops.
    Unesco world heritage since 1986

    The Church of Our Lady, represents one of the largest of all dual church buildings of early Christian architecture. The ancient masonry of the south-building was incorporated in later alterations and remained until the 12th century. The present church was built between 1235 and 1260.
    The Church of Our Lady is considered to be the earliest and most important among Gothic buildings of central construction and altogether one of Germany's first Gothic churches. The remarkably clear and beautiful Gothic design of its foundations is cross-shaped with two chaples built into each of the cross-angles.
