St. Gereon's Basilica (Basilika Sankt Gereon) is a Roman Catholic church in Cologne, Germany, dedicated to Saint Gereon, and designated a minor basilica on 25 June 1920. The first mention of a church at the site, dedicated to St. Gereon, appears in 612. However, the building of the current choir gallery, apse, and transepts occurred later, beginning under Archbishop Arnold II von Wied in 1151 and ending in 1227. It is one of twelve great churches in Cologne that were built in the Romanesque style.

Lovely refuge from the big city around it.

One of the famous Romanesque churches of Köln - most of them where heavily rebuilt after the Second World War. The plan is very interesting.

Very plain. Not very exciting on the inside. It's tough because there are so many amazing churches in Europe to compare it to.

Really quiet area just a bit outside of the city, this romanesque church is a nice hidden gem with a green area around

One of the more famous Romanesque churches in Cologne, it has a yellow geometrical structure and the interior decagonal dome and organ are beautiful. Don't forget to see the large sculpted head of the decapitated Roman soldier St. Gereon outside the church!
