On this day: Cologne Cathedral Was Completed
Thursday, 14th August 2014 by Ian Brown
Construction of Cologne Cathedral was completed on August 14, 1880 – finishing a process which started over 600 years earlier! It claims to have the largest Church façade in the world, and the largest free-swinging bell in the world – the 24 ton St Peter’s Bell – also known as the Great Bell of Germany. The Cathedral is Germany’s busiest tourist attraction.
