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.

In historic old town of Cologne Belgian quarter this basilica sits nicely on the street alongside residential and retail buildings, grounding all who pass through. A lucky visit was just in time to catch Sunday mass with beautiful organ playing and singing. Lit a candle...More

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.

Romanesque at it's best. Adjacent to Neues Markt this church dominates it's surrounds. The history of this very decorative building dates from the 10th century AD. The clover leaf choir is an exceptional characteristic here. This is one attraction worth including on a visitation list.
