Here is the Dom Cathedral in Cologne, Germany. You can read more about it here. It is the largest cathedral in Germany and is just awesome to behold. There are loads more information on the net so you can google it to find more information.
Our son walked the 100+ steps up to the bell tower. Here is the view from up high! It is pretty amazing inside and out!
Here is a bridge with an interesting "tourist attraction". Look along the walkway where the people are - see those colourful things along the bridge? No?
Here we are on the Rhine River. There are many boat tours (well worth it).
The view from the boat. In the evening we sat in one of those outdoor cafes for dinner - marvelous!
And here is our little village of Bensberg, about 30 minute by train from Cologne.
Oh, and at the end of the day, we trudge back to our castle (via a hill paved with cobblestones!). What a wonderful place. We were definitely the "Beverly Hillbillies" at this 5-star hotel though!
Some of the beautiful interior...
Finally, as we return from a mellow dinner at the village, here is the site that greets us!
Oh boy, what a time that was!
I hope you've enjoyed these snippets of our travels in Germany! See you next time!
