There was a free organ concert inside the cathedral. It was a good excuse to get out of the rain. On the program were two works: Priere op. 20 by Cesar Franck and Toccata by Theodore Dubois. After the half hour concert, we ate bratwurst sandwiches from one of the market vendors - lots of mustard and grilled onions. Messy to eat while holding an umbrella, but well worth the effort.
The Munster was built in three stages, the first beginning in the year 1120, the second in 1210 and the third in 1230. Of the original building, only the foundations still exist. The church was officially recognized as a cathedral in 1827.
Visiting art museums is another good thing to do on a rainy day. We visited two. I especially enjoyed the joint venture of artists (mother and daughter) Barbara and Katarina Grosse at the Austinermuseum.

The top three floors of the Augustinermuseum exhibited stained glass windows, statuary and other artifacts once part of the Munster.
We also visited the museum fur neue kunst (modern art). Unfortunately, there was only one exhibit on view.
One last stop before going back to the apartment. Karl Etoffe and Max Tessuti's shop. Fabulous fabrics and trim!
