Benedictine Abbey Church, Limburg-on-the-Haardt

The cathedral church of Limburg-on-the-Haardt (Limburg an der Haardt) was constructed between 1025 and 1045. The church, whose west front had a twin-tower, today is an impressive ruin. The basilica with a nave, aisles and east transept has a crossing separated from the nave and transept by four arches. Instead of a semi-circular apse, the eastern end of the chancel is flat.
