THE TOWER MADE OF LIGHT
There it stands in all its glory. It has changed the face of Freiburg forever and is considered a masterpiece: “The most beautiful tower on earth”. The sixty-year construction of the tower saw wealth and ruin, yielded love and sealed fates.
Astrid Fritz tells an epic and moving tale of how the people of Freiburg, among them the pretentious counts, the thriving merchants, the power-conscious clergymen, passionate architects, their families and the common people, lived, hated and fought in the shadow of the construction of the tower to finally bask in glory from 1330.
