Snow in High Places

Today I climbed the 200 plus stairs up to the top of the cathedral platform.
It had snowed lightly overnight,
and the views were stunning:

Beyond the cathedral itself,
the Christmas markets are visible,
and an ice skating rink which has been set up in the plaza
between the cathedral and Palais Rohan:

The bustle of crowds is much more picturesque up here,
including the Christmas carousel:

Beautiful as the views were,
it was very cold,
and I was glad to get down to ground level,
buy some hot juice at a food kiosk,
and head back to my hostel for a hot shower.
