533 Steps

With my sister and cousin visiting in Germany over the past few weeks, I had the opportunity to spend time inside some of the most remarkable churches in our area, including the Cathedrals in Aachen and Cologne. At my cousin's request we climbed to the top of the magnificent Cologne Cathedral. It was a dizzying walk up the south tower's 533 spiraled steps!
