Handrail at the cathedral of Naumburg (Saale)

Detail of a handrail in the Naumburg Cathedral in Naumburg (Saale), Germany

Inside the Naumburg Cathedral (13th century) in Naumburg (Saale) there are fascinating as well as fun details to see at some handrails. The handrails are decorated with persons, animals and mythical creatures. Some of them made me think the way to heaven is probably arduous.

Another interesting detail: Generally, figures are the brighter the more often they have been touched by the visitors. Well, not all figures have been touched. Only the nice ones.
