Kolumba Art Museum

Cologne, Germany
1 of 30

The ruins of the gothic church in the centre of rebuilt Cologne are the most impressive symbol of the city's almost complete destruction during the Second World War. In 1949 the chapel of "Madonna in the Ruins" was created within the church ruins by the architect Gottfried Bohm as a near improvised shelter for a gothic Mary figure that had remained unscathed. >>Kolumba
