Day 3 I Bonn – Cologne

 

Morning excursion to Cologne to visit Cologne Cathedral (UNESCO world heritage)

 

Cologne Cathedral is a building of superlatives that is the centre and hallmark of this city on the Rhine. The cornerstone of this Gothic cathedral was laid on the Feast of the Assumption of Mary on 15 August 1248. The previous building was apparently no longer deemed impressive enough to house the remains of the Three Wise Men, which Archbishop Rainald von Dassel had brought to Cologne from Milan after the latter city was conquered in 1164. Because of these relics, the cathedral became one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Europe. Its two massive towers have dominated the city’s skyline since their completion in 1880.

The Emperor’s Spa thrills by its historical scenery: magnificent baroque buildings and masterpieces of the spa-architecture. The wealth of sights is the result of the historic past of the Emperor’s Spa dating back to Roman times. Famous people of the European history, aristocrats, artists and writers have left their traces. The composer Jacques Offenbach for example worked as a concert master here in Bad Ems for 12 years. Some of his works were performed for the first time in the “Kursaal” (Marble Hall). He composed parts of his opera “Orpheus in underground” during that time.
