Cologne Cathedral - Reviews From Travellers
What travellers say about Cologne Cathedral
This cathedral is huge and was built between 1248 and 1880. We visited on a sunny day and enjoyed the gothic architecture. Near the treasury you can find a small section that addresses some controversies around the cathedral for example its role in the Holocaust and that the church kept its anti-semitic decoration on the outside structure. The visit is free but if you like to walk up the tower you need to pay 6 Euros and take a separate entrance on the side of the church.
