Construction of the Villingen Münster first began in 1120. The late Romanesque church was rebuilt in around 1220. Heinrich von Fürstenberg chose the church as his burial site. In 1530, the dedication of the church was changed from John the Baptist to Mary and was consequently renamed 'Church of our Lady'.

성곽으로 둘러 싸여 있는 곳에 특이한 문양이 새겨져 있는 철문과 뭇근의 미 인지는 모르지만 특이한 조형물이 있는 외관과.. 이와 달리 안으로 들어가면 차분하면서도 엄숙한 분위기에 화려함이 있는 곳이다

Sehr schöner und stimmungsvoller Weihnachtsmarkt rund um das Münster. Zusammen ein toller Anblick, vor allem wenn es dunkel ist.

I was here just before a wedding, the atmosphere was great. The orchestra was training and people inside the church were all entranced by their music. Very exciting.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
