This huge Gothic structure stands proudly in the city of Cologne, there is just so much detail and work gone into this building its unreal!

When we were visiting they were restoring it, but as you look at the detail of this cathedral you can understand why!

The Facade is amazing...just so much beautiful detail....if you have the courage and would love to enjoy the views of Cologne you can climb the tower!

Even the detail on of the door handles is magnificent!

Just look up wherever you are! This statue stands up high on the exterior of the Dom

Look down too! The floors inside the Dom are so detailed, with amazing mosaics and beautiful art.

The Dom is so tall, inside you can really appreciate the height of this building - with huge pillars and stained glass working its way up the walls.

When we were here there was some scaffolding on the outside of the building, and when we went inside there were workers restoring the glass.
Dont be disapointed by this...its fabulous that they take care and pride in their cities Gem.

There is a small but equally as impressive chapel where you can go and pray in peace away from the tourist crowds.
This shows that to the people of Cologne...the Dom is still very much part of their everyday life.
