Kölner Dom

Finally! It’s been two years but I made it. I’ve seen the biggest landmark in Germany!

The Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral) is the most visited historical land mark in Germany. They started building it in 1248 and finished in 1880. Because of the sand stone it is constantly under restoration but man oh man is it breath taking. On average 20,000 people visit it daily. Ok, enough with wikipedia facts! Haha

This is the view standing in the courtyard in front of the main entrance. Amazing.

The pictures don’t do it justice.

It is also home to the remains of The Three Wise Men.

The inside is just as magnificent as the outside. It is unbelievably large, my husband said – This isn’t just some branch, it’s Gods headquarters.
