Beautiful church right next to Heumarkt, close to the center. Parking around it is very hard, so try to get there by public transportation.

I have seen this church only outside, but the construction is very strong, powerful and you can feel the energy of the rocks. With the light of the moon, the color of the walls are wonderful.

Found this church by following the spires. The entrance is in a small market square where we found a flower market. The interior is beautiful and like all of Colognes buildings it was rebuilt. Worth a visit

This was a stunning church! From the windows, to the statues - the whole experience. It once again brings to mind the incredible detail and craftwork that happened in those days. Definitely worth a visit.

This church is more like a cathedral as it has huge steeples and domes. It has lovely arches and domes inside too and is just off of the shopping precinct.
