Freiburg Cathedral

We briefly toured the Freiburg cathedral, spending a bit more time with the surrounding market day and downing a last couple wursts, but enjoying the cathedral nonetheless.
The cathedral as it appeared in the 1820s


















In July, 2012; sorry about all the trucks;
market day was ending



















The construction was largely sandstone and
in need of ongoing renovation



















1295, right?














The usual Last Judgment tympaum at the stern, unusually
painted; the Hell section, of course















Nave view














Altar panel, coronation of the Mother Goddess; alas, I
didn't catch the artist's name














Because the putti peering out from under Mary's robes is as
cute as any of Rafael's















Speaking of putti, this is only the 2nd cathedral we have
seen in Europe that provided work space for the little ones















Very old medallions in the window here














And a nice sandstone Fall tympanum
