The inside story

Cologne Cathedral is the city´s most famous landmark and Germany’s most visited tourist attraction. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, the cathedral is a renowned monument of German Catholicism and is celebrated for its gothic architecture.

Construction of the cathedral began in 1248 but completely halted in the 16th century due to a lack of funds. Building was suspended for almost 300 years and the cathedral was finally completed in 1880, more than 600 years after construction originally commenced.

The Cathedral can be seen from just about anywhere in the city as it dominates the skyline with its impressive structure and spires. The second tallest building in Cologne today, its gigantic towers hover over the rooftops of Cologne at 157.38 metres and 157.31 metres tall.

Visit the inside of the cathedral and admire the impressive stained-glass windows as they beam vibrant colours into the interior. Discover the ornate chapels, altars, beautiful mosaics and tombs that fill the interior of the cathedral. Visitors can also climb the 533 steps of the spiral staircase to a viewing platform and admire the panoramic views over Cologne and the River Rhine.

The cathedral is open daily with opening hours dependent on the season and/or special events taking place. The cathedral is easily accessible by car or public transport. If arriving by metro or train, get off at "Dom/Hauptbahnhof" stop and the cathedral is located right next door.
