Tower scaffolding

The scaffold-builders lowered 12 aluminium lattice girders from the high platform on the north tower and connected them with scaffolding. The boldness and technical originality of this construction is no less impressive than the structures built by the cathedral’s scaffold-builders in the nineteenth century. For this reason, a photograph of an especially critical phase in the construction was used for the front page of the 1996 (Kölner Domblatt), an annual German-language publication about the cathedral.
