A Roman catholic church situated in Cologne, Germany. Once the tallest building in the world (1880 – 1884) the cathedral has an well decorated history. It’s a truly impressive piece of architecture. Building for the cathedral began in 1248 but was stopped in 1473 meaning it was half complete, work re-commenced in the 19th century and completed to original designs.
The cathedral was intended to house Three Kings, and be a place of worship for the Roman Emperor.
During world war II the cathedral came under a number of hits from aerial bombs, the city of Cologne was a flatened city, however, thankfully the cathedral survivied and stands tall to this day.
