Where did Cologne get its city crest from? Go find out with the story of St. Ursula. Entry to the ossuary is 2 Euros and well worth it if you're into those kinds of things.
We went here twice to see the church. Even though we were there during opening hours, no one was there. Bummer, as I really wanted to see this church.
