Basel Minster

The ferry took me to the Minster: with carving in red sandstone.

The church was reconstructed after the previous Romanesque church had been destroyed by an earthquake in 1356. Its architect was Johnannes von Gmünd, also responsible for Freiburg Minster, the towers being added in the fifteenth century, more gothic:-

Beautiful carving in the north portal:-

In the west door:-

And a high gothic – or is it flamboyant gothic ? – pulpit:-
