    The Cathedral in Cologne is a phenomenon! Not only it's beauty, but its history and surrounding. It is a landmark and the highlight of Cologne. Among pious Catholics, the Cologne Cathedral is considered an important place of pilgrimage, because there are the bones of Magi. The treasury, the bells of the cathedral, the two church organs and the numerous stone carvings on the facade attract many visitors. You can explore the church on your own, or join a guided tour. In the surrounding of the church, you can find museums, shopping opportunities and the main train station.
