Koln (Cologne), North Rhine-Westphalia (2) – The Exterior of Kolner Dom (Day Five)

Kolner Dom is a Roman Catholic Church situated beside the main Hauptbahnhoff.  To come outside the main doors of the station and see this spectacular structure in front of you, can certainly take your breath away.

Seat of the Archbishop of Cologne, it was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996.  Covering 7,014 square meters, it is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe.   I certainly can relate to this as I was having a difficult time getting the whole thing in my frame.
