This giant Gothic cathedral, which until its completion in 1880 had been under construction for over 500 years, is perhaps Germany's most famous religious structure and includes two huge towers that serve as the defining symbol of Cologne's skyline.

Absolutely stunning building. An absolute must see for anyone visiting Cologne. Try to go on a sunny day because it’s breathtaking when it streams through the stained glass window.

It's a very imposing and grand looking cathedral, huge inside and well worth a visit if you're in the area. It's right next to the train station. We parked in the train station car park which is about a 5 minute walk to the cathedral....More

Obviously the cathedral is very impressive and is a must-see both in and out. We were just a bit unimpressed by the climb to the top. Though inexpensive it was a tough climb and the view was largely obscured by protective nets. And the spiral...More
