Video Post: Cologne Cathedral

Fast facts:

  • Prevailing style: Gothic
  • The Diocese of Cologne was founded before 314 AD
  • 509 steps lead to the top of the towers
  • Special designations:
    • UNESCO World Heritage site
    • Seat of Catholic Archbishop of Cologne
  • Was once the world’s tallest building (and still remains the tallest building in the city except for a residential skyscraper)
  • Present records: world’s largest church facade

Here’s a short video I made of the inside of the Cathedral during prayers. It is amazing to hear the ancient surround sound technology in action. The minister’s voice can be heard echoing off the walls in a way that makes it hard to ignore him when he is speaking. Also, I love the sound of German, so that’s probably what made it even more beautiful!
