The german church

The german church in the old town has logical reasons for it´s name. Built during the 16th century by German merchants as a sort of societyhouse. Sweden, as the rest of the baltic countries, was strongly influenced by the Hansa merchants under the Hanseatic league . This building was transformed into a church in the 17th century and has had the same design ever since. One of several churchtowers that can be seen in Stockholm, and as with all the other towers, it has it´s own unique design.

I have some pics of tops of churches, the style is different, but the essence is the same.

Greetings from Perú.
