Into the sky

This is a part of the cathedral in Cologne (Dom in Köln)

 

Der Kölner Dom, eine Seitenansicht. Er zeigt die Bauweise der Gotik, obwohl er erst Anfang des 19 Jahrhunderts fertig gestellt wurde.

 

The Dome in Cologne contains the architecture of the gothic times. But was completed in the beginning of the 19th century.

 

The columns you can see take the force to the ground and allow this huge monument to stand even after the bomb attacks of the WWII. It is an architecture that you will never forget when seeing it. The people of Cologne identify themselves with this cathedral and it is the main building in the city. Cologne is the Dome. It is not only a place of the catholizism it is a reality.
