Köln

I was in Cologne for a day and had a quick and fantastic tour of the city.  

 A good German tour is three things: fascinatingly thorough, bitter cold, walking involved.

The Bridge of Love Locks. 

Walking into the city from the bridge, the cathedral is impressive - the most visited site in Germany.

Inside the Cathedral Gerhard Richter's stained glass window shimmers. Photographed

nicely.

There's a saying, 'when the Cologne cathedral is finished, the world will come to an end'. . . .

A sign for the famous Cologne No. 4711. 

Amazing metal work details at sunset. 

A mosaic dining room floor from the Roman times. That was once ground level in Cologne. 

Middle of January, but the Cologne residents are always up for a good time.
