Owner description: 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.

Visiting the Cologne Cathedral is not negotiable! It is truly amazing. It is right next to the Central Station and the Bridge with lockets.

Any trip to Cologne would not be complete without a visit to this wonderful cathedral,mercifully spared the destruction of air raids during ww2.
Impressive building outside and inside and magical when the Christmas markets are there.
This is a must go destination and well worth the visit.

This place took my breath away. If you're up for it, definitely hike up to the top of the spire, especially on a clear day. Incredible views of the city from up top!

I was very disappointed. The outside could do with a good clean and the inside was extremely dark and had no atmosphere. Another Landmark which has been talked up. The one positive was that you did not have to pay to go in!

Impressive building in the heart of the city - a must see. It's more charming in December when it's surrounded by Christmas Markets!
