Monasteries and Churches walk through Cologne Old Town

The grand Cologne Cathedral is the most famous attraction in Cologne, but the old town offers quite a few other lovely historic churches, monasteries and cathedrals to see. A walking tour of an hour or two should be enough to visit the highlights, and so here’s what I saw during my visit.

 

Great St. Martin Church

It’s a lovely area, and whether you’re aiming for a specific church or not, you’re bound to enjoy the old town.
