This Cathedral has relics of the 3 Wise Men behind the main altar so it can be overlooked. The reliquary is fashioned as a golden house-like container. The Cathedral was a key structure for airplanes to maintain their orientation during WW II. Heavy military and police guard the Cathedral since the January 2016 terrorist activity. The visitation inside the Cathedral is randomly changed to prevent possible terrorist activity. I felt safe on my visit considering the changing belief systems in the world.
One word, EXCELLENT

A great day trip to this lovely city with its enormous Cathedral. We had time enough for personal sightseeing, and visiting the Cathedral at our leisure. The stop in Limburg on the way back to Frankfurt was a pleasant break, and a chance to see an untouched medieval town.

This was a good tour and the group was very small. The tour guide was able to take care of individual customers in a good manner.
Town has lots to see and is worth the 2hr drive. Unfortunstely our driver was new and his first time taking a group to Cologne. He was very nice but not prepared/trained enough to lead an organized/informative trip.
Fabulous cathedral and interesting city. We travelled in a van as a small group late May on a beautiful day. The open top bus is a 1.5 hour trip which all of the group found too long, you go out of the main tourist area and we felt it would have been better spent in the old town area. Guide was extremely chatty and hadn't done this tour in many years so didn't know where toilets were etc. Limburg was a great surprise, a quaint town lovely to walk through and we were lucky there was an ordination of priests occurring at the cathedral so we witnessed a great ceremony. Skip the sandwich and drink box and buy yummy local food. Great day overall, different for us going high speed on the autobahns.
Peter was a great tour guide. Cologne was a much bigger city than I had expected but the city bus tour was a great way to get the big picture of the city. We loved it!!!
