The Cologne Cathedral – a huge cathedral

The Cologne Cathedral is not only world cultural heritage, it is also a gigantic cathedral. It forms the center of Cologne. If you are in Cologne, you must look at the church, which is always built. One of the most important relics is surely the shrine of the three kings, where the bones are supposed to lie. In any case, take at least an hour to see it all.
Also the bell tower can be climbed. I was up several times myself. You have an incredible view over all of Cologne from up there. There are however 386 steps. So a little physical condition should be.
