I went there a few days ago and, of course, went up the bell tower. It's sooooo high that I almost didn't make it, the stairs are endless. Definitely not for people ve suffer from heart problems, asthma, or knee problems. I am more or less in-shape and almost did not get there. But really, it's worth it .... It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Despite the fatigue of getting there, it is worth it to see the city from the tower. I recommend going, it really is one of the wonders of the world!!!
One of the things that struck me when I visited the Cologne Cathedral is the wonderful chorus in the middle of the cathedral. It is huge and made of dark wood which gives the place an impressive solemnity. Anyway, there is a richness to the choir in this beautiful cathedral. Inside it we can find a huge and magífico altar where the impressive reliquary of the Three Kings. Everything is gold, and from afar looks like you're watching a treasure as they appear in the tales of pirates. It is one of the three masterpieces found at the scene, the other occupying the chapels at the entrance to the ambulance. In the north wing is the Gero crucifix dating from the ninth century, while the corresponding chapel south has the greatest legacy of the school of Cologne painters of the fifteenth century, The Adoration of the Magi by Stefan Lochner. So as you can see not only worth visiting the Cologne Cathedral for the exquisite architecture has, but you also have to know by the marvels within.
