One of the pure Romanesque churches in Cologne right within the city center. Interrupt your shopping excursion with a quick stop a this magnificent example of Romanesque architecture.

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.

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.

In the fall, with the trees turning, the beauty of this structure makes for some great photos. Inside its yet again a massive church. But the outside lines I find truly intriguing, especially when able to blend in some terrific fall colours or late afternoon...More
