"Climb the stairs of one of the Cathedral towers" Top 5 Page for this destination Cathedral - Kölner Dom Tip by BillNJ
Cathedral - Kölner Dom, Cologne: 190 reviews and 352 photos
For a tourist, one of the highlights of any trip to Cologne is climbing the stairs of one of the Cathedral towers. Be forewarned, however, that you must climb a total of 509 narrow, winding steps up the tower -- and then descend the same 509 narrow, winding steps to exit. If possible, try to go when it is not crowded because there are sometimes traffic jams with the two-way traffic on the stairs.
The walk up the stairs is challenging, and my legs were like rubber when I finally made it. Fortunately, there is plenty of room at the top to walk around and take photos. The views are amazing!
