The Freiburger Münster open-work spire is the only one that was finished in the Middle Ages - all others were completed much later.

Although I'm absolutely not religious, I am fascinated by this piece of medieval architecture any time I see it. Hence the Münster has been featured in three of my WWP contributions:
World heritage
and this one.

The Münster spire has survived for seven centuries and not even the shock waves of the bombs destroying almost all of the surrounding city during World War II could seriously damage it.

Taken 13 images on Fuji Reala with a Zenitar 16mm Fisheye. Camera mounted on a monopod and held over the railing. Scanned with Nikon LS40 and stitched using autopano and PTGui. Postprocessed in Photoshop. Converted to cubic with pano2qtvr.
Behind the scene : how this panorama was made
I shot this panorama while I was waiting to shoot the Marketplace panorama. Eckhard Gerteis, whom I met by chance up there, said he had the key for the "Sterngang" which is normally closed to the public. He asked me to wait and after I walked a bit around I decided to shoot this panorama just for fun.

It is shot using the same technique as for the marketplace one and for Welcome to Verdon holding the camera on a monopod over the railing. This one was another weird idea since much near details promised much parallax errors and much difficulties to stitch.
