... down from the hills we did a walking tour of the town which is quite nice as there are so many of the streets that are pedestrian only. We went to the Market Square where a daily market is held but I think it spoils the look of what is a beautiful square. There was a lot of white asparagus on sale and it is on a lot of menus, quite popular here. We also saw some pubs with badges on the front wall and these are the badges if the different drinking clubs ...

I think if we had to pick though our favorite German city would be Berlin followed in a close second by the Rhine river valley. The next stop on our journey includes our first international train ride as we head from Cologne to Amsterdam!
Until Next Time…David& ...
