The inside of the church is peaceful and has many lovely architectural highlights... More

This is a lovely landmark church, located in the old town, by the river. While not being the most beautiful church in town, its sheer height is impressive enough. Make sure to go over to the other bank of the river to take obvious photo of the huge cathedral and the church.

We were out walking and looking at the river when we saw this amazing building. It is surrounded by old houses and looks out over the Rhine.

Can be easily found by following the Rhine waterfront southwards from the main station, you'll see it on your right. The tower is one of the landmarks of the historic town, and a recognizable feature of the Cologne skyline. A must see for architecture lovers!

This building was renovated after WWII and they have done a very good job. A lot of the original floor mosaics are preserved. It is definitely worth 20 minutes to visit this church.

The church stems back from the romans and has been a Benedictine monastery. It is open most days from 9am and the entrance is on the right side of the building
