Münster's parlor, the Prinzipalmarkt in the city center, has one more attraction. The work of art "Himmelsleiter" has been shining on the tower of the Lamberti Church since Saturday evening. The work by the artist Billi Thanner previously hung on St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. The 48 meter long ladder, consisting of two parts, can be admired in Münster until March 2023. At around 9:00 p.m., the "Heaven's Ladder" - accompanied by a dance performance - was switched on.
The lower part hangs inside the church, is 12 meters long and has 21 rungs. At the top of the tower, the work of art is 36 meters long and has 33 luminous rungs.
Second attraction is the tower of St. Lamberti. In the evenings - except on Tuesdays - from 9 p.m. to midnight, it blows a half-hourly tact on a semi-circular copper horn. He is subordinate to the fire brigade in Münster, because he is also supposed to watch out for fires in Münster and the surrounding area. A woman has been doing this job for the first time in a number of years. In 1379, this task 298 steps above the Prinzipalmarkt was first mentioned.
