1. Salemer Münster
The Salem Minster was the church of the former imperial abbey of Salem and today serves as the parish church of the Roman Catholic community of Salem. The Gothic cathedral was built between about 1285 and 1420 as a three-nave columned basilica and is one of the most important High Gothic buildings of the Cistercians in the German-speaking world. In its external form, the church largely corresponds to the original architectural design, while alterations in the interior permanently changed the spatial effect. The inventory includes furnishings from the late Gothic, Baroque, Rococo and Classicist periods. It is the third largest Gothic church in Baden-Württemberg after the Ulm and Freiburg Minsters.
