. . . the church of St. Sebald in Nuremberg . . . the choir and nave are not aligned.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it likely to be deliberate or simply a matter of cowboy building in the middle ages?
the change in alignment looks pretty slight on plan, I can’t say I ever noticed it on the ground and it’s one of my all time favourite churches. The way that the big hall-church chancel juts out into the rising streetscape, sheer urban magic! Sorry can only find one of gunter’s dodgy Christmas market photos.
On the subject of great steeples, Freiburg gets my vote
