Churches & Cathedrals

Roermond Cathedral

Roermond and its cathedral. You wouldn't believe it, but it is a proper cathedral. The city is closely built around the church and it is difficult to capture the building showing its full size. Anyway once you are in you dive into a different world. 

The church allows to take images using tripod and flash. The option to use a tripod alone is the recipe for better images. See for yourself.

Cologne Cathedral

Cologne Cathedral is one of the main catholic churches in Germany and one of the biggest churches in Europe. The church is a tourist magnet and visited by thousands every day. 

They operate a no tripod no flash policy which makes it very hard to capture the interior. The church is rather dark if no sun rays can break through the great windows, meaning, if you do not have a sunny day then it is about ISO 1000 and fully opened aperture.

Dresden Garrison Church

The building of the former Dresden Garrison Church had the capacity to welcome the soldiers of the regiments stationed in Dresden. Inside the church has to sections, one for protestant and one for catholic soldiers, which is owned to the differences between protestant service and the catholic mass. Nowadays only the catholic part of the church is accessible and the doors mostly open to the visitor. The catholic church has the average dimensions of an ordinary church. The visitor entering the church finds himself in a quiet room that invites to stay. 

Apart from the colourful windows, the church itself has not many mural paintings, if any, as for that here we have quite a difference to the average catholic church. If it weren't for the windows, it could also be a protestant church, because the interior is rather simple. However, this no-frills interior gives room for thought and maybe prayer as might be the case. 

See for yourself.
