Church
“Of course, a must see as it is the most famous spot in the city. However, I recommend you to not waste your money on paying admission to walk up the tower as the view is not great and pretty smelly up there.”

Mosque
“This Mosque was built by the famous architect Paul Böhm, who is from a traditional family of architects - the Böhms have built many important christian churches but this is maybe the first contemporary mosque in Germany ever. You can visit and get inside, the mosque however is controversial since Ditib, the club who runs the mosque, is linked to Erdogans turkish government and is criticized for stopping the integration process of turkish minority in Germany and rather widening the gap. Erdogan opened the Mosque himself in 2018, a day when almost everything in Cologne was in state of Emergency.”

Church
“Romanesque St. Gereon's is perhaps Cologne's most unusual church, built on the site of a former 7th-century church. That church was itself constructed in the 12th century on a ten-sided domed structure dating from Roman times (and still visible). Dedicated to Saint Gereon, this visually appealing structure has an unusually long choir, and is filled with medieval murals, mosaics, and ancient relics.”

Historic Site
“Kultur ? In jedem Fall MUSST Du die Abteikirche besuchen. Informiere Dich vorher auf Wikipedia oder über das Internet -- hier kann ich nicht alle Infos dazu beisteuern. In Kürze : Benediktiner Kloster erbaut ab 1024 n.Chr. - romanischer Baustil. Umgeben von einem kleinen Park, dem ehemaligen Klostergelände .... ... aber eher unwichtig. -- Rechts davon die ehemaligen Klöstergebäude, heute dem LVR Rheinland (Kultur und Denkmalschutz) gehörende Gebäude -- Links davon das ehemalige Gebäude des GeStaPo-Gefängnisses, welches eine sehr traurige Geschichte beherbergt. ”
