This is it for the first part. However, there will be more, many more photos from Cologne. So please, keep tuned.

And now off to the Rhein Valley

Rhein Valley

Time to go on...

After Cologne a quick drive through the Rhein Valley. It's an incredibly beautiful location with countless observation spots and attractions. I only did a quick drive-through, however even this gave me some idea what a beautiful place it is.

Railway line nearby

A regular dual-carriageway (not Autobahn). Speed limits vary and typically are around 100km/h but unless indicated there is no general speed limit.

No hard shoulder in some stretches. Then again, this is the case on some old Autobahns as well

This is all from Koblenz. Our next stop is Zeche Zollverein, a former coal mine and now a UNESCO world Heritage site and one of the most important European industrial monuments.

Zeche Zollverein

Next is Zeche Zollverein in Essen. It is a former coal mine which was shut down in 1986 and now is a UNESCO site and one of the greatest industrial landmarks and museums in Europe.

Essen in one of the European Capitals of Culture this year.

Shaft 12, perhaps the most famous and iconic building of the site.

Absolutely fantastic photos there, seems like you had quite an epic trip! Hopefully you went through equally epic amounts of beer and schnitzels!
