Cathedral of Halle (Saale)

Cathedral of Halle in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany

In the beginning the later cathedral of Halle was a church built by the Dominican. Traditionally churches of a medicant order don’t have a tower. The lovely gables were added by Cardinal Albert of Brandenburg. Today is is just a church again but people of Halle still call the edifice a Dom (cathedral).

The photo was taken on a foggy morning from the roof of the Francke Foundations.
