My photo journey…… Day 96 - The Clemens Church Münster

in #esteem3 years ago (edited)

Hello dear Steemians,



Today I have some pictures from my hometown Münster for you. No flowers or insects, but a little piece of history. The city is now over 1200 years old, and has about 311,000 inhabitants ( 55,000 of them are students ) .

The city had to live through many ups and downs, but the biggest disaster for the city was certainly the World War II. About 91% of the Old City was destroyed by Allied air raids. Like the Clemens Church, that I want to show you today.

The St. Clemens Church in Münster (Germany) is a monastery and hospital church built according to the plans of Johann Conrad Schlaun in the years 1745-1753.

The reconstruction and the faithful restoration of the Clemens Church with its rich interior decoration began in 1956 and was completed in 1973.

Today the city is completely rebuilt, and one of the most beautiful cities in the northern part of germany.
