The Museum Schnütgen has a valuable collection of medieval art on exhibit in one of Cologne's oldest churches. Many of the pieces are already worth a trip by themselves, such as the glorious Parler Bust, the expressive Crucifix from St. George or the so-called Comb of St. Heribert, a unique filigree ivory carving. The spectrum of the exhibition ranges from wooden and stone sculptures, valuable works of the goldsmith's art and stained glass to rare ivories and textiles. A distinctive feature of the museum is its largest exhibition space, which is over 1,000 years old itself: The stillness and aura of the Romanesque Church of St. Cecilia and the special proximity to the works makes it possible to experience their spiritual vibrancy and beauty.
