World Heritage Site since 1996 - almost a must ... an interior visit


Come and visit Cologne Cathedral with me. I will take you on a passage back in time. Like a medieval pilgrim, we will explore the interior of this magnificent building together. We will take an architectural as well as a liturgical approach. What did the church mean to pilgrims of the Middle Ages? What role did it play in the German unity in 1880?

Please have in mind, that Cathedral interior visits with guides are very popular, and the Cathedral authorities only alott a certain number of licenses every day. Therefore, a 3 day advance booking period is required, and a little flexibility as to the exact time of the tour might be necessary.

Therefore, please contact me before making the reservation.
