St. Aposteln, Cologne

The former collegiate church is dedicated to the twelve Apostles. It is one of the twelve Romanesque churches built in Cologne in that period. The church has a basilical plan of nave and aisles, and like St. Maria im Kapitol, has three apses at the east end making a trefoil plan. There is a single tower of 67 metres at the west.

The church was constructed in the first third of the eleventh century. The eastern parts were built after 1192.
