This famous Romanesque cathedral, re-opened in 1985 following extreme damage during World War II, takes second billing behind only the Dom as Cologne's most prominent religious structure.

This is a very nice photo opp, especially if you are able to combine it with a view of the Cologne Cathedral in the background.

I was visiting Cologne for one day only. I knew that the museums would be closed but I certainly didn't expect a church to be closed one day of the week. How ridiculous is that! Don't people go to church on Mondays too?
