The church was constructed by the mendicant order of the Franciscans. That explains why there is no tower. The lovely gables were added by Cardinal Albert of Brandenburg. Even though the building is called a Dom it isn’t a cathedral.
I took this photo from the roof of the Francke Foundations on a foggy morning.
