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 here 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.
