Then we pass under the buildings of the Bischofsresidenz (dating from the 16th to the 18th century), in which the government of Swabia now resides, into another garden. Anyone who wants to see an angel with a hammer can do so in that garden on the pedestal of the monument to the victory in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871. That hammer could possibly serve to pin the letters on the monument back, but then those letters must first be found, of course.

That is not a problem with the Domkirche Sankt-Maria. You just can't miss it. The building apparently originally dates from the 7th century, but the current architecture is dominated by Romanesque and Gothic style features and dates from the 10th to the 15th centuries.
