This is one of the most amazing cathedrals in the world. Unfortunately, I didn't make it inside, but I was there in December when the Christmas markets were there. Beautiful exterior!

I took a group of 36 English school kids in July 2016. We had a guided tour organised by our tour operator. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The Cathedral truly is an amazing building. I highly recommend climbing to the top of the tower.

The cathedral is very beautiful, it fully represent the german gothic architecture. We decided to go up, in order to reach the top of the tower. For students there's a reduction on the ticket price. The walking is very tirino but the view is appailing. Recommended.

While I've been coming to Cologne for over 30 years, it's always a must for me to see the cathedral. I'm living abroad now, but this is a must-see when returning to Cologne! Beautiful to look at from the outside and its iconic towers and the inside with its high ceilings, beautiful glass windows and the south-facing window designed by... More
