Although considerable parts of it are still in [[Romanesque architecture]], it is widely considered to be among the finest examples of high, or late, [[Gothic architecture]]. [[Erwin von Steinbach]] is credited for major contributions from 1277 to his death in 1318. 
-Described by [[Victor Hugo]] as a "gigantic and delicate marvel", and by [[Johann Wolfgang von Goethe|Goethe]] as a "sublimely towering, wide-spreading tree of God", the cathedral is visible far across the plains of [[Alsace]] and can be seen from as far off as the [[Vosges Mountains]] or the [[Black Forest]] on the other side of the [[Rhine]]. [[Sandstone]] from the [[Vosges Mountains|Vosges]] used in construction gives the cathedral its characteristic pink hue.+The '''Black Forest''' is a [[forest|wooded]] [[mountain range]] in [[Baden-Württemberg]], southwestern [[Germany]].
