The gothic masterpiece stands right in the heart of Köln and includes the second tallest building in Cologne after the telecommunications tower and is the third highest cathedral in the world. It took 6 centuries to complete this gigantic building, built in 1248 and completed in 1880. The construction of the Catholic cathedral was originally intended as a Dreikönigsschrein relic retreat or the Shrine of Three Holy King. The gold-covered sarcophagus contained the Magi bones (Three Holy King), which in the Christian tradition was known to be three foreigners who came to Jesus after his birth. They gave Jesus the gold, the incense, and the fig tree, and the three were better known as the Magi.
