How did they do it? How did they build the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe without the help of modern-day tools and equipment? In Medieval times, it was a complex process involving an assembly line of common laborers, experienced builders and skilled craftsmen; materials such as stone, iron and wood; experimentation and innovation; and time! Lots and lots of time—in some cases, hundreds and hundreds of years!

The Cologne Cathedral in Germany is an impressive architectural masterpiece. As the third tallest church in the world, it is described by the UNESCO organization as an “exceptional work of human creative genius”.

  1. Since some point in my childhood, I have asked myself that question …. how on earth? I love Cologne and her cathedral is the icing on the bun of a lovely city – that is a superb photo of it!

    1. See, this is why I love blogging! I have never heard the expression “icing on the bun” before. It is sure to become my new favorite saying! I can’t wait to tell the grand-kids they were the icing on the bun of my day next time I see them. 🙂 Oh, and I totally agree with you about Cologne – beautiful city!

      1. I have to confess, that I may have altered the expression …. I think it is really ‘icing on the cake’ but bun sounds so much more fun to me so, for as long as I can remember, that is what I have said. I also say ‘iced the bun’ on occasion. Small pleasures 💫
