Kolumba is an old cathedral, a museum, and an archeological excavation in the center of Cologne. The architectural design of the building by architect Peter Zumthorits is simply incomparable.
Kolumba is a museum located in the center of Cologne, right on the side of the Romanic cathedral St. Kolumba. St. Kolumba was destroyed in the Second World War and was rebuilt in 2007 by architect Peter Zumthorits.
The museum was built in 1853 by the Archdiocese of Cologne and has been in its new location since 2007. The collection starts from the 11th century and includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, and religious icons. Next to the permanent collection you will also find changing exhibitions. The museum is open from Wednesday ’til Monday between 12 to 5 pm and the entrance fee is 5 € (for visitors under 18 years of age, admission is free) while the cathedral is open everyday for free.
The architecture of the building is a great concept and the light design in the part of the archeological excavation and the old cathedral is incomparable.
Everywhere, you will find small details which are a kind of an old/new symbiosis.
If you are near, go and have a look and enjoy five minutes of silence. You will find the entrance of the cathedral right next to the museum. On their website you are able to get all the detailed information and history on the current exhibitions: http://www.kolumba.de
