    Catholic main church in Bonn and a landmark of the city
    The Bonn Minster was completed in 1248 in the transition from Romanesque to Gothic, in the same year, the foundation stone was laid to the Cologne Cathedral. Its architectural history dates back to the time of early Christianity on the Rhine. The origin was, as excavations have revealed under the crypt, a Cella memoriae, which was already built in the second half of the 3rd century and were kept in the dead seers. Here is the martyrdom of two Christian-Roman officers have taken place, which today worship as a city patron Cassius and Florentius. A monument in the form of two huge heads in front of the eastern area of the church is reminiscent of their martyrdom and is a popular photo opportunity. Around 400 a small church hall was built here above the tombs of the two martyrs, in the middle of the 11th century by a seventy meters long, three-nave basilica was replaced. Under Provost Gerhard von Are in the middle of the 12th century again a new building arranged. Around this time, the cloister, which represents a jewel of Romanesque architecture north of the Alps due to its good state of preservation.

    It has experienced two royal crowning: the coronation of Frederick the Fairly in 1314, the coronation of Charles IV in 1346. The blue and red windows of the apse, representing the city's patron saint, are among the works of the Rhenish Expressionist Heinrich Campendonk. The relics from the Martyr's Tombs had been raised by Provost Gerhard of Are in 1166 and kept in precious shrines on the high altar. In the Truchsess War (1583/84) they were destroyed.
    Today, the cathedral stands in the middle of a lively city and, as a church in the city, offers the members of the community at Bonn Cathedral, passers-by and tourists a place of silence and prayer. The five-towered cathedral with the mighty Viertsturm determines the silhouette of the city from afar.

    The Bonn Minster is one of the city's landmarks. In addition, you can sit on the cathedral square very well and watch the hustle and bustle in the city center ...

    The Bonn Minster
    Since the 13th century, when the people of Bonn took the cathedral basilica in their city seal, it is the landmark of the city of Bonn. Although the panorama has largely changed, the cathedral is still shaping the cityscape.
    Today's Bonn Minster has arisen over the martyr's graves of the two city patrons Cassius and Florentius.
    Today, the cathedral stands in the middle of a lively city and, as a church in the city, offers the members of the community at Bonn Cathedral, passers-by and tourists a place of silence and prayer.
