Churches Tips (4)

The Living City

Favorite thing Cologne is a living city, in every sense of the word. Whilst the old city has been painstakingly rebuilt the modern city is ever-changing. The best known churches have been around for hundreds of years (in the case of the Dom over 800) but there are other important places of worship which are much more recent and equally interesting.

Pictured here is the Basilica of St Kunibert, who was the ninth Bishop of Cologne from 627 to 663. He is credited with finding the grave of St Ursula, having been led to it miraculously by a pigeon and was sanctified for his monastic achievements.

The church here was built in 1998 and the ornate doorway is a piece of modern eccclesiastical artwork which rivals many of its Medieval counterparts. The Basilica is located on Kunibertskloster at the end of Johannisstrasse and is very much a local centre of worship.

Cologne Cathedral

Favorite thing If you have only 30 minutes in time for changing to a connecting train in Cologne, you still got enough time to visit world famous Colgne Cathedral. Because the Cathedral is right beside Central Station. Visible from far away. So, don't miss it!

Another Big Church!

Favorite thing The church of Gross st. Martin is another mighty church in Cologne. In fact, from some of the viewing points along the bridge, it almost blots out the Cathedral.
