All reviews beautiful church old town roman ruins romanesque architecture benedictine abbey church stands fewer tourists pretty area important church roman style historic sites fascinating history worth a visit cologne cathedral small fee rhine river alter markt
Beautiful church which began life in the 12th Century as a Benedictine Abbey. Pristine white interior less ornate than most catholic churches. There is a very strange,harrowing statue of Christ. Looks like he's on the cross but there is no cross. A few minutes walk...More
Gross St.Martin is a lovely looking church.....the interior is not ornate but nice and simple...apparently some of it was rebuilt after ww11...there are Roman ruins in basement which you can visit for a very small fee.

Hello, I don't have an answer to your question, but I too am planning a trip to Cologne specifically to see the Cathedral and then venture forth onto Ghent, Bruges, Delft and back to Amsterdam. All this happens in a couple of months. I hope you receive an answer as I would be most interested in the content.
