My Travels Abroad: Cologne

After our beautiful castle visit in Munzenberg we made our way to Cologne.  

There we had a walking tour of the cathedral and the surrounding area.
 The black gives the cathedral a gothic look.  All that black is dirt.  It takes a lot of time and even more money to clean the whole building.

 The pipe organ in this place was huge!

 The cathedral was beautiful.  We were given lots of information about the cathedral and its history.  But the one that stuck with me is that it takes 8 years to clean 1 of those windows.

Almost every street in Germany looked like this.  I could get use to this.
