Cologne

Our last stop was Cologne for two nights. We only really had one day, and luckily, it was a beautiful one! We were just chilling, looking forward to returning to tea, chips and (in my case at least) wardrobes!

The main talking point really, is the Dom. Its fantastically, wonderfully gothic! It was really interesting that there were a few statues over the doorway which had obviously been recently cleaned, because the pale stone contrasted significantly with the dark that makes up the main building. Unfortunately, you need to pay to go on a tour inside, so we stood in the free bit, took a few photos of the veined ceiling and then left.

Interesing fact about the spires of the Dom: they are skeletal – so when the sun shines behind them, you can see the structure of the the spires! Its amazing. And adds to the gothic appeal!

After purchasing mini-Dom statues for our collections, we walked along the river, down to another bridge, and chilled in a Rheinpark, admiring the beautiful views.

We were on the other side of the river, looking for the ultimate Dom shot – and we found it!

So, that’s it! That is the conclusion of my holiday! Hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed going on my holiday!
