Munich, Germany

As the tallest structure in town, the Frauenkirche in Munich lifts the eye, fills the spirit, and tells the time. Here, Joseph Ratzinger occupied the cathedra until he was called to the Vatican in 1982. You would never guess that the Gothic tower of the Frauenkirche and the gabled roof of Hirmer's were erected 400 years apart. They fit together so perfectly today.  [1994]
