The Cathedral in Bamberg of St.

Peter and St.

George, one of the seven Imperial cathedrals of Germany, example of Romanesque architecture.

A student sitting in a pub over a beer, to him down the stairs Zimmermann, Bamberg offers to go to the Cathedral to see it in the night light.

They come to the Cathedral where they are greeted by a servant.

The Verger lights the lantern sculpted figures of "Adam's gate" on the Western facade of the Cathedral: on the one hand, the figures of the Emperor Henry II, his wife Cunegonde and the Apostle Stephen, on the other hand - Nude figures of Adam and eve and the Apostle Peter.

Close-UPS of parts of figures, heads.

The servant leads the friends to the Cathedral.

Its light from the darkness snatched the crucifixion of Christ, the elements of the interior.

Displayed floral designs, bas-reliefs, sculptural figures of the contending of the apostles and prophets on the St George's choir, chimeras, images of everyday life of ordinary people.

The burial of Emperor Henry II, his wife Cunegonde in the Cathedral.

The Cathedral in the morning light.

Swinging bells of the Cathedral.

The open window view of the old houses and churches.

Zimmermann and the student walking down the street, skirting the Cathedral, come to Prince's gate.

The round arches of the gates are completed with the bas-relief of the enthroned Mother of God surrounded by the Holy Imperial couple Heinrich and Cunegonde and the apostles.

Inside the Church displayed the figures of Mary and Elizabeth.
