"Kölner Dom" Cathedral - Kölner Dom Tip by Rupanworld

Cathedral - Kölner Dom, Cologne: 190 reviews and 352 photos

It is Germany's largest cathedral. It took almost six hundred years to completion. Started in the 13th Century, and completed in the 19th century. The Cologne Hauptbahnhof was completed three years earlier than the Cathedral and both stand just side by side and if one is visiting the city by train there's no chance of missing it. The size of the cathedral is huge, impossible to capture in the frame of a camera and it dominates the entire skyline of Cologne. Interestingly, this huge Cathedral was one of the few big Churches in Germany to escape the bombings during World War II as it is said that the British pilots used it as a navigation point.
