Cologne Cathedral

HELLO!

As promised, here’s a travel post from Cologne, Germany! (I’m really excited, I’ve wanted to do this one forever!)

This Cathedral is so magnificent and unique that it definitely deserved it’s own post.

I’m not gonna lie – I’ve seen cathedrals from many different countries and cities- but this one doesn’t even compare. Its beauty is indescribable and I’m so glad I can share it with all of you!

First, here are a few pictures from the outside. (P.S. I took all of these pictures myself and tired my best to crop out people’s heads haha)

Sadly, it was under construction when we visited, but we could still get great pictures. I especially love the pictures taken from the bridge during the sunset; aren’t they beautiful? I’m crazy jealous of those who live in Cologne and get to see this view every day!

Now, here are some pictures from the inside of the church (again, insanely beautiful).

Here comes the (not so) fun part – the tower.

Of course, being the first time we visited Germany, we decided that it would be a great idea go up to the top of the Cathedral. I don’t want to say we were wrong, but we didn’t really know what we were in for..

It was just really painful and terrifying at some points. Let me explain – 533 stairs, in a narrow spiral staircase with no windows. When we started going up, I was getting claustrophobic because I felt trapped and had no idea when we would get to the top. I almost had an asthma attack because of the humidity and constantly losing my breathe. Also, we couldn’t even slow down because there were people above and below us. Overall experience = meh.

I found this picture on  tripadvisor.co.uk, it’s pretty accurate except imagine it being packed with people.

I guess I can say that the 360 degree view made it all worth it. (Prepare for the avalanche of pictures about to hit your screen)

And then… Another 533 steps down. YAY.

Anyways, thank you so much for reading! If your planning on visiting the Cologne Cathedral, don’t let me talk you out of going up to the tower. Just be careful if you know you can’t handle small spaces or being sore for a week (jk).

I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you in my next post! 😀
