Photographer's Note

This is the nave of the cathedral St. Paulus in Münster, a city in the northern part of Nordrhein-Westfalen. It already is the third cathedral on this place.
The first cathedral here was built about 805 when Münster began to be a bishop's see, the second about 990 and the today's church was built about 1225. Its construction time added up to 40 years.

The most valuable work of art besides the astronomical clock is the altar cross, called "Triumphkreuz" ("Cross of triumph") which you can detect in background. It was made from oak wood in 13th century. You can see closer views in workshop.
