Cologne's most striking landmark, the cathedral, should not be missed on a city trip. The Roman Catholic Cathedral Church is the third highest church in the world and was built in Gothic style. If you want to dedicate your trip to the sights of Cologne, you should definitely make a detour to the Hohenzollern Bridge. This architectural wonder not only has towers and portals, but is particularly interesting because of its arches.
