Cologne saw a lot of destruction during WWII, however, the Cologne Cathedral was spared for the most part. There are many incredible pieces inside, including the tombs of the Three Wise Men. Their tombs are encrusted with gold and are very ornate. They have a place of honor at the back of the main alter. The rest of this beautiful city is a mixture of the old and the new. We had a great time exploring and getting lost.
