City of Churches

Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Gross St. Martin and Shrine of the Three Kings. Cologne Cathedral and Saint Gereon's Basilica will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Bacharach (Burg Stahleck, Wernerkapelle, &more), Rheinfels Castle (in Sankt Goar) and Bonn (Haribo Store & Bonner Munster). And it doesn't end there: trek along Calmont Klettersteig, explore the different monuments and memorials at Melaten-Friedhof, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Severus, and steep yourself in history at Metternich Castle.
