City of Churches

Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Explore Cologne's surroundings by going to Rheinturm (in Dusseldorf), Frankfurt (Main Tower & Stadel Museum) and Mainz Cathedral (in Mainz). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, see the interesting displays at Motorworld, pause for some serene contemplation at Sankt Andreas Kirche, and take an in-depth tour of Roman-German Museum (Romisch-Germanisches Museum).
