The west choir is a phenomen of Carolingian architecture in central Europe, where many churches (esp. cathedrals and abbey churches) had choirs on the east and on the west end following the Plan of Saint Gall. West choirs are appearing until the end of the middle ages, while the churches are following a tradition of their original carolingian plan. Some few exceptions are west choirs of pilgrim churches built without a carolingian paragon of an older church (e.g. Rothenburg o.d.T., Oppenheim). Main examples of romanesque west choirs are Augsburg, Bamberg, Cologne, Fulda, Mainz, Naumburg, Nivelles, Worms.
