I got permission to go to behind the chapels of Strabourg cathedral.
I was primarily interested in this little courtyard, which has the funerary inscription of Erwin von Steinbach, the celebrated architect of the fourteenth century.
However, the visit continued! Since I was there on site, the mason in charge offered to take me up the construction elevator, to the reconstruction work on the crossing cupola. I was thrilled.
The views were wonderful.
