COLOGNE/ Germany

Last Saturday i went for a daytrip to Cologne, the fourth city of Germany (approx. 1 million inhabitants). The following pictures are taken in and near the city-center and show you both the nice, old buildings, but also some ugly buildings. Also pictures of the city from above, at the platform of the Dom Church (almost 100 m. high).

I'm quite a fan of Köln, I think it's underrated as a city.
