The Cologne Cathedral

I may earn a small commission for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial, and/or link to any products or services from this website.


For about two euros you can climb the 533 steps of the south tower of the Cologne Cathedral to the very top, about 100 meters up, passing through the bell chamber that houses the St. Peters bell, which at 24,000 kg is the largest freely swinging church bell in existence.


Aside from a small postcard depicting the architectural blueprints for the cathedral, my only memoirs were two small bottles of Kölner Domliqueur, which is a reproduction of liquor that the monks of the cathedral made centuries ago using mostly herbs. It was a little too sweet for my tastes, but the bottles make great keepsakes.
