Cologne Cathedral

We traveled to the most ancient and busiest city in the Rhineland - Cologne. I got to view this magnificent Cologne Cathedral which is considered the greatest Gothic church in Christendom.

This medieval statue of St. Christopher, Patron of Travellers, welcomes visitors to the Cathedral.



Dominating the skyline of Cologne, Germany is their world famous cathedral: Kölner Dom. By far their most famous landmark for hundreds of years, the Cologne cathedral is part of the Roman Catholic Church and hosts the Archbishop of Cologne. One of the most interesting things about cathedral Koln is just how long it took to complete it. The construction initially started in 1248, but due to multiple halts in building, it took more than 600 years before the cathedral was complete.

  3. Can see from the stained glass windows, this one's Catholic. I think other denominations do not have pictures and statues. Btw, is Notre Dame in France or where? Did you go there? That one's more famous...because of the Hunchback book/movie.
