The peculiar octagonal tower in front of you signifies that you have arrived at Saint Quirin Church, one of the best examples of 13th-century Catholicism in the entire North Rhineland. You can see that Romanesque architecture was at its peak in this area, as there are many clear architectural examples of German Catholicism. This enormous monument was built in the tiny village of Neuss, just a stone’s throw from Düsseldorf.

Of course, the sky-blue dome is the most identifiable part of the building.
