Full description
"They say that there are as many churches in Cologne as there are days in a year, so on this original tour we will show you the city's most historically and architecturally important sacred buildings! Discover interesting facts and legends about religion in Germany. Your 2-hour tour begins right in the heart of Cologne’s Old Town, at the lively Old Market Square. This is where you will find Great St. Martin Church, one of the city’s 12 Romanesque churches. Step inside this magnificent building to enjoy its tranquil atmosphere and hear its story, from the original Roman chapel, through a Benedictine monastery, to WWII damages and reconstruction. A few steps away you will find Cologne Cathedral, the city’s most famous monument. Admire its spectacular Gothic architecture and find out why the Cathedral is important not only to Cologne’s Christians but also Jews. See also the Baroque-style Kirche Mariä Himmelfahrt and the Romanesque-style Basilica of St Ursula, which houses a shrine made of real bones. The final stop will be at the medieval Basilica of St Gereon, which has one of the largest and most beautiful domes in Europe."

    The guide was excellent. Our tour guide, Bernd, guided us through the medieval churches with a great deal of expertise and also explained a great deal to us about the city and architectural history of Cologne. But the Cologne peculiarities (Tünnes and Schäl, Kallendresser, etc.) were not neglected either. I can wholeheartedly recommend the tour.
