  the view of the Dom from across the Rhine
by richiecdisc

Cologne's cathedral is justifiably famous. Many such structures disappoint on first view due to their somewhat smaller than imagined stature. Not so the massive 157 meter towers that rise from the Gothic Dom. Its building was no less an undertaking, spanning nearly 600 years from 1248 to 1842. Odd as it may seem, despite heavy bombing the seeming easy target escaped with nary a scratch. To truly appreciate it, get to the other side of the Rhine where you can take the massive structure in.

Directions: 157 meters, it should be pretty easy to find.
