Photographer's Note

The greatest church of Wetzlar is often referred to as "Dom" or cathedral, which is not quite correct as the city never was a bishop's see.

In the 13th century, it was planned to replace a then romanesque church by a gothic one - which usually was done by constructing the new and bigger church around the old one which was not torn down before. The special item about Wetzlar is that the full gothic structure remained unfinished, thus leaving a mixture of romanesque and gothic parts up to the present day.

Wetzlar cathedral is the oldest double church of Germany and in use for protestant as well as catholic worship simultaneously.
