Dialog - Köln

13.10.2012 - 15.10.2012 @ (Eine Ansicht)

For a long weekend to Cologne with Isabelle. Because she had her exam there on Saturday morning, we decided to meet up and simply extend the stay. We booked a hotel, I got myself a train ticket, we gathered some tips and off we were.

Climbing the "Dom"

On Monday morning, we decided to climb the staircase to the top of the Cologne Cathedral's (German: Kölner Dom) southern spire. After almost 400 steps, we reached the observation deck at around 100 meters above ground level.


On Sunday, after sleeping in and enjoying a good breakfast while watching the "Köln Marathon 2012", we strolled along the Rhine park to the Rheinseilbahn, and back along the riverside back all the way to the Chocolate museum, which we paid a (worthwhile) visit.

Our hotel

After we'd gone out for Italian food, we returned to the "Dom Hotel" and to its hotel bar to have a Kölsch (or two).


On Saturday, we toured the downtown area around the Schildergasse and Hohe Straße, shopping for winter jackets. It gets quite crowded there, but we managed to find what we were looking for.
