As well as being one of the tallest churches in the world, Cologne Cathedral is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Dedicated to Saint Peter and to Saint Mary, it’s no surprise that it’s Germany’s most visited monument and a must-see attraction while in Cologne. This majestic cathedral is truly spectacular, dominating the urban landscape of North Rhine-Westphalia’s capital. No matter where you look, there it is, in all its glory.
Once inside, be sure to have a look at the stained-glass windows and the carvings on its choir stalls. Entry is free, but get there early to avoid the crowds.
