Located in the center it's the last preserved Gothic cathedral in the city, originally built (1513-1525) as a 3-aisled gallery basilica. The Romanesque west tower dates from 1170. Together with the neighboring Cecilia Church, the current Schnütgen Museum, this is the only surviving twin church plant in Cologne. Kunst-Station Sankt Peter Köln (Cologne Saint Peter Art Center) at Jesuit Church of St. Peter is almost a religious experience unto itself. It's a sensuous haven for contemporary art exhibitions from the likes of David Salle, Rosemarie Trockel, Francis Bacon, Anish Kapoor, Cindy Sherman and many others. Especially the permanent objects like 'Crucification of St. Petrus' by Peter Paul Rubens (ca 1639) combines to a meaningful unity with the modern cross altar by Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida. Religion, contemporary art and music in a simple architectural space, with a clarity of basic material selection, sophisticated lighting all correspond with the various exhibited objects.

There is only one cathedral in Cologne [the seat of the archbishop of Cologne]...and this is not it! It is only a church -- nice as it is.
