Travel with Detlev - A stopover in Cologne

in travel •  11 months ago

Today, on my way to Berlin, I had some minutes left and jumped out of the train to do some pictures.

Colognes Carhedral




The facts

The construction of the Cologne Cathedral commenced in 1248 and was halted unfinished for
years in 1473.

The work restarted in the 19th century and the cathedral was completed, to the original plan, in 1880.

This is the location of the cathedral

The cologne cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spires.

Back to my train

Now, Berlin is calling and I walk back into the huge building to grab my ICE train to the German capital.


My new travel mate

It's a shame that there is scaffolding on the church - because it's pretty amazing otherwise.


Yes, they are always some constructions.
