This church may not look like much when you first step in, but it’s so central it’s worth a visit. It’s the only remaining mendicant church in Cologne centre and is under the care of the Franciscans. There are two mediaeval wall paintings on columns...More

The Minoritenkirche church is a triple-nave Gothic basilica completed in the 14th century. It is quite beautiful. There is a tryptich behind the the simple altar that is very beautiful. At the back of the church there is an impressive organ.

In this church there is the tomb of the Blessed Duns Scotus, a great early mediaeval philosopher, known in his time as the "subtle doctor". Not hard to find; it's about halfway along one of the long walls. He taught at Oxford. There's a memorial...More
