Association for the Promotion of the Town Twinning Cologne-Bethlehem e.V.
We will guide you through the multimedia travelling exhibition in the Church of St. Gertrude in Cologne with wonderful impressions from the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem
The story begins with: But it came to pass at that time, ... Today, above the grotto of the Nativity, there is a basilica from Justinian's time of 533 with all its precious works of art from different times. Especially the mosaics from 1169 are a feast for the eyes again today, where after ten years of renovation the splendour as it was 850 years ago has been made visible. For the first time in Germany, we are showing the world cultural heritage Church of the Nativity after its renovation. Here you will get an insight into the details of the works of art, watch the work in progress and immerse yourself in Bethlehem ...
