Well... you can't miss the cathedral (Kölner Dom)!!! It's huge which is kinda helpful when looking for the train station which is next door ;-) It's easy to find the way back to your train from almost everywhere.

It's amazing to see how big it is (the towers are 157 meters high) and start thinking how they built it hundreds of years ago! Building the cathedral actually took 632 years, it wasn't completed until 1880. The first building work was done in 1248!!!!Unbelieveable.

You can have a look inside (massive and nice) or you can climb all the stairs to the top (very many of them!).

Directions: It's next to the central railway station (or better: The central railway station is next to the cathedral ;-)
