The Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral) is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture. Construction of the cathedral began in 1248 -- and it was not completed until 1880.

With this tip, I have included the link to the Wikipedia entry that provides the dimensions and other relevant facts about the Cathedral. To really appreciate this magnificent structure, though, you need to see it in person.

Directions: Near the Cologne Hauptbahnof (main train station)
