The Kölner Dom is a huge landmark in the middle of Cologne. It’s always an impressive site, no matter how many times you see it. You can roam around the inside of the cathedral for free (with an option for donations) if you like, and pick up a brochure for a few Euro cents. There is an English tour given daily that I believe is worth the money. You can also climb the tower for €3 and see the relics in their Treasure chamber for €5, or combine the two tickets for €6. Family cards are also available. For more information on their prices and hours click here.
The Dom is located right outside of the main train station. If you are driving, there is a parking deck located underneath the cathedral at Kurt Hackenberg Platz 2, Köln (€1,80/hr). For more parking options, check out this site.
