    The oldest part of the church is the cloverleaf choir, which is closely related to those of Romanesque basilicas in Cologne, Neuss and Speyer. The semicircular main apse has three equally semicircular, connecting radiating chapels. The two transverse arms, on the other hand, are polygonal closed. Between the apse and the transept are two choir towers, a typical Rhenish feature, as well as the dwarf galleries in the choir apse and the transepts. The eight-sided crossing tower is also a Rhineland feature.The nave was probably built between 1220 and 1244 and is the most austere part of the church on the outside. The inside is characterized by the tendency to verticality, which is characteristic of the late Romanesque. The elevation is three-part and consists of the series of piers and arches between nave and aisles, a gallery above it and the clerestory at the top. The nave and aisles are vaulted with rib vaults. Because the church thus possesses the most important constructive properties of the early Gothic (architecture), it is also considered to be part of the Roman Gothic.The west building was built between 1244 and 1260. It is believed that this part of the church was not completed due to poor soil conditions. A Baroque-style square bell tower was built on it in the 18th century.(nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munsterkerk)
