Cologne is a great place to walk and explore. I started my walk at the Cologne Cathedral, or Dom. I heard so many recommendations about it, I was sure it could not live up to the expectations, but it is an extraordinary building.

The size is so impressive, it is difficult to get a complete image to show all the details.

The Dom is next to the main train station, bridge and Rhine River, so easy access to some of the best places in Cologne. Here are my favourite sights from a walk along the river.
