The center of the Cologne is the giant cathedral. It is breathtaking both inside and out.

Although the cathedral was great, the highlight of the trip was probably the chocolate factory. Eli was impressed with the machines. He even got to taste the chocolate right out of the assembly line.

Cologne was once a Roman city. We explored some of the Roman ruins. The most fascinating part was the sewer. (to the right)

Cologne

Parke and Eli came back to Sweden from the US in the middle of January via Germany. We spent a couple days in Cologne and then a couple in Baden Baden.
