The Basilica church of St. Ursula (German: [ˌzaŋt ˈʔʊʁzula], Colognian: [ˌtsɪnt ˈʔoʒəla]) is located in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is built upon the ancient ruins of a Roman cemetery, where the 11,000 virgins associated with the legend of Saint Ursula are said to have been buried. The church has an impressive reliquary created from the bones of the former occupants of the cemetery. It is one of the twelve Romanesque churches of Cologne and was designated a Minor Basilica on 25 June 1920. While the nave and crossing tower are Romanesque, the choir has been rebuilt in the Gothic style.
Nice church but beautiful and haunting side chapel with reliquaries, relics and bones. Extra charge of 2 euros admission. Though you probably won't stay more than 20 minutes, it's definitely worth a visit for the artistic or spiritually inclined.
It is a verry normal church but if you ask for the golden chamber you get something realy great it wil cost you €2.00 p.p. but it is worth every cent is is scary and verry creapy all those relics are asome and cool the wals are lind whit skulls and bones spet the words pray for us saint Ursula
impressive church and very interesting story about it. Different ways to save the bones... :)
The church is nice, this place is known for it's room of bones. The walls are covered in remains. The wife couldn't stay very long as she was starting to feel uneasy.
Small old church. The bone room is small and impressive. 2 euro entrance fee. Opens 10am
A really interesting church to visit. Nowhere near as busy as the main cathedral, but definitely a place to check out. If you want to see the bone room reliquaries be sure to go at a time when someone will be there to let you in.
