Streets of Strasbourg

While in Strasbourg, France I must have become fascinated by the streets, rooftops and doors...I say that based upon my pictures!  Today I am sharing the doorways that intrigued me for their age as well as variety in design and color.


The year above the doorway indicates when the building was constructed!  
1761!  Wow!





This date on this one is 1747!





The Strasbourg Cathedral is unbelievable!  It was constructed between 1284 and 1439 and is Romanesque and Gothic in design.  The spire extends upward 466 feet.


I am sending my walk to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.


Thank you for hosting, Susan!

  3. Kate - While visiting our military kids in Heidelberg, Germany about 10 years ago, we made a weekend trip to the Alsace-Lorraine region and visited this cathedral and as you said it was unbelievable. As an engineer, I always look at contstruction and was amazed that this could have been built back then. I'm enjoying your trip.

  7. Fun, Kate. In Italy, I took photos of hidden niches everywhere. We even talked about doing a coffee table book! It would be fun with the doors, too, if you had enough of them.
