Potzdorf Cathedral

Postby ric » Mon Feb 22, 2016 11:16 pm

The exterior shots of the Cathedral in Potzdorf is actually of Salzberg Cathedral in Austria.
The Cathedral was first consecrated in 1628, and this date is visible over the central doorway as Fate flees the crowning.
The building was damaged in WW2, and repairs were not completed until 1959. That date appears over the right hand doorway.
This would be a bit out of place in a movie set in 1908, so there is a flag draped over the date.

Found it!
The interior scene for the coronation is Karlskirche in Vienna.

See: https://goo.gl/maps/BTpNA9YhriR2
The altar area and the organ loft over the entrance are distictive.
