The church has the typical Ottonian shape, and is quite elegant. It is one of the 12 romanesque churches in Cologne. The main reason to go, is to view the original wooden door, still on display, but no longer in use. When I was there,...More

I came across this church somewhat by accident during a short trip to Cologne. It is a bit outside of the Old Town center, perhaps 10-15 minutes' walk from the Dom. It caught my eye due to its clear Romanesque architecture. It is accessed through...More

While aimlessly walking around, I stumbled upon this church, well not really as I saw it as I was walking along and looked down a street. I had to go and look. Just awesome.

This church has a more modern look to it with it's outer brick facade. It is very nice inside as well but I found it very hard to find even with my map.

Right near downtown, and easy to find, St. Maria im Kapitol is one of the best preserved Romanesque churches in the Cologne area. From the Cathedral walk straight down the pedestrian only Hohe Strasse until the end. Look to the left and you will see...More

The church is at Marienplatz, but it was difficult to find the door to the church. You have to go around the block to find it because there are apartment buildings around it and you do not have sight of the doorway. The church has...More
