  • Having strolled round the Cathedral which is very imposing we saw the very ornate casket said to house the bones of the Three Wise Men. It is worth a visit into the Catgedral for this fact alone!  more »

  • The experience of being close to an important religious symbol like this has a powerful energy.
  • As a monument the church is beautiful. But all that about the 3 wise men are nothing else than BULLSH..T and the ignorant still believe. that it is really sad.
  • One of the most attractive church in the world
  • Cologne=cathedral. please see cologne cathedral if you pass while your trip.
  • This is the main attraction in the Cologne Cathedral. Shrine of the Three Kings is also known as Tomb of the Three Kings. It is believed to contain the bones of the Biblical Magi (known as the Three Kings who visited Jesus after his birth). This looks It like a golden basilica.
