Drakes Going German Part 3-Cologne

Sunday morning we woke up with tired feet, but we were ready for the next stop on our tour...Cologne.

We parked a little outside of town and rode the train in so we didn't have to deal with city traffic and attempt to find parking. It was so worth it, because as soon as we exited the train station, we walked right into the plaza of the Dom Cathedral....Breathtaking. It is sooooo huge, it is difficult to photograph!

{Seriously, you should google this cathedral so you can see some professional pictures. Amazing.}

Although the Dom is definitely the main attraction in Cologne, it is a beautiful city with 12 Romanesque churches (in adddition to the cathedral) right around the City Center. We walked around and enjoyed a sunny Sunday afternoon.

We had a wonderful weekend and arrived back in Enschede tired but ready for more! On this Sunday we leave for a trip with Jay's classmates. We'll be gone for a week and will be visiting Switzerland and Italy during this school-sponsored trip. Can't wait!

Tot ziens!
