Fascination of Cologne Cathedral



Guided tour/tour

A tour of the exterior

The world-famous building still looks breathtaking today. During our exterior tour, we explain why Cologne has a Gothic cathedral in the first place and why it took more than 600 years to complete it after the foundation stone was laid in 1248. Discover the cathedral from all sides, find the most curious details, learn more about previous buildings, war damage and restoration measures. Of course, we will also explain the most famous pieces of interior design so that everyone is perfectly prepared for an individual tour of the interior without a guide.

Attention: Only in German
