Excerpt from cologne.de:

St. Severin

...this church originated in the late 4th century. It was extended several times. The fact that the archaeological dig area under the church in the midst of a Roman graveyard has been conserved means that the remaining foundations of the original building can also be viewed. St. Severin still houses rich interior features such as the murals in the crypt, the chancel décor with a part of the Medieval floor, the original choir stalls and the high altar, behind which the Shrine of the Holy Severin is displayed on a pedestal.

The Y-shaped crucifix from the 14th century and the late Gothic glass paintings in the long nave are also outstanding. From the outside, the church is primarily Gothic looking as only the chancel annex remained Romanesque.

Excerpt from cologne.de:

The youngest Romanesque church in Cologne shapes the view of the Rhine in the north of the cathedral city. It was completed in 1247, one year before the foundation stone of Cologne Cathedral was laid. The relatively rich décor of the Middle Ages has been retained in St. Kunibert, which means that altars on the nave pillars depict the former character of the monastic church.

Of particular note is the monumental yet delicate Annunciation group from the 15th century, which marks the area of the former interior chancel. Equally important are the extensively retained murals in the chancel, the original flooring around the high altar and above all, the windows from the early 13th century. The new church treasury in the west nave is a rather modern attraction.

Excerpt from cologne.de:

St. Maria Capitol is located on the site of the capitol of Roman Cologne. The construction of the current building originated in the 11th century. The predefined proportions of the temple were retained when the nave was build. The initiator of the building project was the Benedictine sister Ida, granddaughter of Emperor Otto II.

The imperial origins and her claims to status are evident in the size of the church and crypt. Moreover, the preserved interior features - such as both the wooden door wings dating back to around 1065, the very expressive Y-shaped crucifix, which was consecrated in 1304, the late Gothic glass paintings or the Renaissance choir screen, which separates the choir from the nave area - fulfilled the highest standards of their time.

Excerpt from cologne.de:

Just two minutes walk from the Cathedral is the late Romanic church of St. Andreas - set in the midst of Cologne's banking quarter. It was founded in around 960 by Archbishop Bruno as a chapter of canons, and at the time was situated outside the city walls.

A striking feature of St. Andreas is the combination of Romanic and Gothic styles. The Romanic part features rich ornamental constructional elements, whereas the late Gothic choir hall is impressively refined and elegant. Mary's Chapel offers a veritable treasure trove of Gothic wall paintings depicting scenes from the life of the Mother of God.

The dark chancel windows from the late 19th century create an extraordinary impression of room. There is a notable connection between the Romanic and modern architecture in the crypt of St Andreas. The extraordinary atmosphere is intensified by the artificial lighting within the underground room: flat light domes, supported by intentionally thin concrete pillars, disperse an indirect ray of light.
