Photographer's Note

Tholey Abbey was first mentioned as early as in 634 A.D. and is the oldest monastery on German soil.
The abbey recently had the great pleasure to receive three choir windows created by famous German artist Gerhard Richter - whose only other church windows can be seen inside Cologne Cathedral.
It was during the inauguration festival week when we incidentally arrived there.
This image shows the opposite direction away from the choir with the windows: organ by Nollet 1736, pipe work stolen by French revolutionaries in 1793. For the windows see https://www.trekearth.com/gallery/photo1588731.htm
