While aimlessly walking around, I stumbled upon this church, well not really as I saw it as I was walking along and looked down a street. I had to go and look. Just awesome.

This church has a more modern look to it with it's outer brick facade. It is very nice inside as well but I found it very hard to find even with my map.

Right near downtown, and easy to find, St. Maria im Kapitol is one of the best preserved Romanesque churches in the Cologne area. From the Cathedral walk straight down the pedestrian only Hohe Strasse until the end. Look to the left and you will see...More
