  • It is one of the oldest churches of Cologne: St. Alban (Alt St. Alban), built during middle age in 1172, in a style between Romanesque and Gothic early, rebuilt several times and redesigned in the 17TH century. During the second world war it suffered numerous damages that almost destroyed it, which remain only some of its ruins; However, it is preserved it in this State as a symbolic message to current and future generations to alert them about the horrors of the war. Front was installed in 1959 to what at the time was the chapel with the main altar, a sculptural group of the artist Käthe Kollwitz called "Fathers of mourning", which represents the dark side of life associated with the war: the sadness, the death and destruction. This attraction is really overwhelming for its symbolic significance: it is impossible to visit it without experiencing an emotion and respect.

  • St. Alban-one of the oldest churches in the city, which was destroyed during the second world war, and began to restore. Now here is a Memorial in memory of those killed in the war. Note This is the place if you see.
