"Replica of the Filial on top of Dom" Cologne Things to Do Tip by Rupanworld

Cologne Things to Do: 714 reviews and 1,382 photos


As one can read from the inscription in one of the photos, it is the replica or the model of the filial on top of the tower of the Cologne Cathedral. It is situated at the Domplatte exactly in front of the entrance to the Cathedral and near the tourist information centre. It was placed there as a symbol of completion of the Cathedral. it bears the exact size and shape of the filial at top, e.e. 9.5 metres in height and 1.60 metres in width. This shows how huge the Cathedral is if the tiny looking top could actually be so big!
