This is not your common Catholic church. Cologne Cathedral, also known as the High Cathedral of St. Peter, is the seat of the Archbishop of Cologne. With the second tallest spires and largest façade of any church in the world, it is a sight to behold, less than 1 km from this hotel. The cathedral’s High Altar was installed in 1322, consisting of black and white marble and a depiction of the Coronation of the Virgin at the center of a row of figures. The Shrine of Three Kings – thought by some to hold the remains of the Three Wise Men – is also housed here; as are four medieval church bells and a formidable choir. Visit the cathedral for religious services or simply to regard regal Gothic architecture and elaborate stained glass window tableaus.
