These two towers illuminated in the night sky are the Bell Towers of the Freisinger Dom, also known as the Mariendom, or the Freising Cathedral, which is located in the City of Freising in the Bavaria region of Germany. One of the Bell Towers has a clock located on it.
The Freisinger Dom is the co-cathedral of the Catholic territory with the Cathedral in Munich, which means that the two seats of worship share the function of being one bishop's seat. It was constructed in the Romanesque style of architecture, which was very popular in the Middle Ages and was heavily characterized by arches and among other things, large towers such as the two Bell Towers of the Freisinger Dom.
Construction on this Cathedral was started in 1159, after the original Cathedral that stood on this spot was destroyed by fire. It is constructed out of brick and as a result was the first brick structure to be built north of the Alps Mountain range since the time of the Romans.
