#travelwithme to CologneMonday, June 06, 2016
A few weeks ago we visited cologne again & with this the Dome, but this time we also
climbed up in the maine tower! it was still cold in germany so that's why I was so warm
dressed, because of not much free time I didn't got to edit the pictures until this
weekend, so this #travelwithmepost is a bit late but still worth it!
Cologne Cathedral or the Kolner Dom - in german - is one of the main attractions for
tourist in Cologne. Situated in the heart of Cologne, near the central station & with
the Rhine on one side !
Most people tour the cathedral but only a few know that you can even climb the stairs
to the top of the spire. To climb, enter from OUTSIDE the cathedral, go downstairs
(towards the restrooms) and there will be a sign for the stairs.
The staircase starts off as circular small stone steps, so the space is very small too so
it can be somewhat dizzying. You must have a good physical & fizical condition.
The first stop is the bell tower & you can already see amazing views of cologne & surroundings.
If you keep climbing you start going up to a metal open staircase then the last climb is a tight circular to the top, it is really worth it to go all the way to the top because from here the views are spectacular!
