Cologne's fall from grace at the beginning of the Reformation had the blessing that since the city had so little money they unintentionally saved many of their Romanesque churches from falling victim to the baroque. St Gereon's should be seen on a sunny day when the contemporary glass shines. Failing that, the glass is still pretty impressive. You enter into an eight-sided first church (8 for the 7 days of Creation and the Day of Resurrection)
and before you see the raised upper church built over the tomb of the saint. Ask to see the crypt.
