How did they do it? How did they build the great Gothic cathedrals of Europe without the help of modern-day tools and equipment?

The Cologne Cathedral in Germany is an impressive architectural masterpiece. As the third tallest church in the world, it is described by the UNESCO organization as an “exceptional work of human creative genius”.
