UNESCO is more interested in how the cathedral looks rather than its religious and historical importance? I had a slight suspicion that they were whacked. Now I know!!

What do you mean? Interested in how it looks? What?


All the fuss was about its surroundings and the presence of the Dom in the cityscape.

UNESCO sucks balls. I hope the Dom gets taken off the list so that a more progressive city administration can build skyscrapers on the other side of the Rhine in the future.

We don't need another German city full of "skyscrapers". Ehrlich nicht.

There should at least be a limitation in the vicinity of the Dom and the historical core.

Why? I want skyscrapers. And the local people should decide on what they want, not UNESCO.
