Discover Cologne and its landmarks with a rental car

The imposing Cologne Cathedral is the unmatched landmark of the metropolis and one of the best-known buildings in North Rhine-Westphalia. With a height of 157 meters it is the third highest church building in the world. The Roman Catholic Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in the Gothic style and is said to house relics of the Three Kings in a shrine. Therefore, it is an important Christian pilgrimage destination. The cathedral was built in Gothic style - typical for this are the two spire towers that characterize the building. In front of the cathedral is a pedestrian platform with a wide staircase. Visitors should park their rented car in one of the multi-storey car parks or in the surrounding area, around the cathedral.

Depending on the direction from which you approach the cathedral with your rental car, you should bear in mind that the three-arched Hohenzollern Bridge next to the Cologne Cathedral is only open to railways, pedestrians and cyclists. In order to avoid annoying procedures, it is therefore worthwhile for non-local residents to book a navigation device when booking a car with their car.
