The Beautiful Cathedral in Cologne, Germany

Kölner Dom or Cologne Cathedral, as known in English is a Roman Catholic Church in Cologne, Germany. It belongs to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the famous landmark of Cologne. It is also known as one of the best architectural buildings in Germany. It is dedicated to Saint Peter and the Blessed Virgin Mary or Hohe Domkirche St. Peter und Maria in German.

I am also fascinated by the Gothic architectural design of this Cathedral especially the nave and the glass windows inside. This is also one of the major tourist attractions in this city visited by thousands of tourists everyday. Never miss to visit this landmark when you visit Cologne.

I am happy to visit Cologne Cathedral again last August 2010. The first time I visited it was last June 2007. Here are some of the images I took during my recent visit.

That darker image is the tallest tower of the Cathedral located some meters away in front of the building.

The south transept facade reveals the taller central space framed by lower aisles, spanned by flying buttresses.

    Cologne Cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedrals, architecturally, it’s monuments and mosaics are wonderful. It’s peculiar, however, and may be related to the number of tourists, but it is not a peaceful place of worship.
