This is the largest Gothic Cathedral in northern Europe
Statues reflect local legends
and religious themes
as well as significant events
as when the mayor and bishop tried to kill each other, once by Lion

The building at right is the location where the original perfume "cologne" was invented and sold. You can still buy it here

Clocks don't just tell time.
On the hour the figure sticks out his tongue. I'm not sure why.
Another legend depicted in stone
The Christmas Market
Unique carving of the Christmas Story surround the Market
There is a tradition on this bridge over the Rhine
of documenting a couple's love with a lock
There are thousands of these locks
I wonder how many couples are still together.
