When visiting Cologne you cannot just walk by the cathedral (the Dom as it is called in Cologne). It is a VERY large church (it is the largest gothic church in Northern Europe). We went inside but couldn’t walk through the church because there apparently there was a service going on (didn’t see many people though), so I have almost no photos of the inside. Outside there are lots of people on the square, so it is very difficult (actually impossible) to get a shot without any people in it if you want the church as a whole. After waiting patiently outside one of the main entrances I managed to take the shot below.
