Basilica Of St. Ursula - Review

Built upon the ruins of an ancient Roman cemetery, St. Ursula was constructed to honor the 11,000 virgins that are said to be buried in the cemetery. St. Ursula is the other one of the twelve Romanesque churches that you should not miss out on. The St. Ursula is so historically pertinent that Cologne’s coat of arms, which has 11 figurines are in fact of St. Ursula and 10 virgins.

You might notice a slight difference in the style of architecture once you’re inside. It’ll be slight if you’re looking from a layman’s perspective, glaringly obvious if you know your architecture. While the nave and dome has been designed keeping the Romanesque style in mind, the choir has been influenced by Gothic architecture.

Be sure to visit the Golden Chamber, the alleged site from where the remains of the saint and the virgins are said to have been excavated. All the bones that have been retrieved from the cemetery line the walls of the Golden Chamber forming either letters or designs.

  • Nice church but beautiful and haunting side chapel with reliquaries, relics and bones. Extra charge of 2 euros admission. Though you probably won't stay more than 20 minutes, it's definitely worth a visit for the artistic or spiritually inclined.

  • It is a verry normal church but if you ask for the golden chamber you get something realy great it wil cost you €2.00 p.p. but it is worth every cent is is scary and verry creapy all those relics are asome and cool the wals are lind whit skulls and bones spet the words pray for us saint Ursula

  • impressive church and very interesting story about it. Different ways to save the bones... :)

  • The church is nice, this place is known for it's room of bones. The walls are covered in remains. The wife couldn't stay very long as she was starting to feel uneasy.

  • Small old church. The bone room is small and impressive. 2 euro entrance fee. Opens 10am
