St. Gereon’s Basilica

There is a long history behind the construction of this medieval church, built between 1151 and 1227, dedicated to the memory of St. Gereon.

The construction of this church follows the Romanesque style of architecture. Visitors are awed by its huge interiors and spellbound by its intricate stonework. Visitors should check out the 10-sided central vault, dating back to 1220 and built atop remains of the Roman walls.
