Day 256 – Cologne, Germany
This morning we said goodbye to beautiful Luxembourg City and hopped on a train heading to Cologne, Germany. To our surprise, the scenery along our four hour train ride was spectacular! I especially enjoyed seeing the steep slopes of the Mosel region which produces my favorite type of wine (the deliciously sweet German Riesling). Upon arriving in Cologne, we dropped off our bags and quickly began exploring the city. The crown jewel of Cologne is the absolutely stunning Cathedral. The pictures below DO NOT do it justice. It is ENORMOUS and one can’t help but feel humbled standing next to it.
