Domkloster 4, Cologne, Germany
Dominating the skyline of Köln (a.k.a. Cologne in English) in Germany, the Köln Cathedral is one of the few structures that remained standing after the vast majority of the town was flattened by aerial bombs during World War II. Given its status as Germany’s largest Gothic church, designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and being a long-held important stop on the Roman Catholic pilgrimage route, it is not surprising that Köln Cathedral is the most visited landmark in all of Germany. We’ll share all the basic information you need to visit the Köln Cathedral as well as our own experience on our own stop to this magnificent church.
Cologne, German Köln, is the fourth biggest city in Germany (after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich). It's located in the Northwestern part of the country, between Bonn, the former capital of West Germany and Düsseldorf, the capital of North-Rhine Westphalia, the same Bundesland, where Cologne is home.
It's that time of year! Where Christmas Markets are popping up ALL over Germany...and Europe for that matter...and everyone's getting their Glühwien on!
