Cathedral of Halle (Saale)

Cathedral of Halle in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany

In the beginning, the later cathedral of Halle was a church built by the Dominican. Traditionally churches of a mendicant order don’t have a tower. The lovely gables were added by Cardinal Albert of Brandenburg. Today it is just a church again but people of Halle still call the edifice a Dom (cathedral).
