Cologne's accessibility makes it a perfect destination for a day trip. You can reach the city centre from the airport within 15 minutes. So I hopped off my plane and straight on to the metro to Koln Hauptbahnhof (Cologne central station).
This pretty fountain was discovered behind cologne cathedral. The thing that I love about Cologne is that a lot of the city's history is preserved. There are many areas that give you a mental picture of what everything looked like in the olden days.
After filling my bag with chocolate from the museum gift shop, I took a 20 minute stroll to Hohenzollern love lock bridge. It's one of the most beautiful things things that I have ever seen. The whole bridge is covered in padlocks of different shapes, sizes, and colours.
My German adventures are not over yet. I will be in Frankfurt for a weekend in December, to see the infamous Christmas markets. Munich and Hamburg are also looking like possible day trips in the future.
