Although it seems like a nice place to choose to live, Cologne is an odd place to choose to travel to since there aren't many tourist sites within the city. Eau de Cologne came from here, which is certainly capitalized upon to bring in tourists. Other than that, the city is known for its famous cathedral, which is simply called "The Dom" (literally translated as "The Cathedral").
I got here early and had a few hours to kill before meeting my host in the evening, so I went to The Dom. Even after touring some truly magnificent churches and cathedrals these past three months, I couldn't help but be impressed. Check it out:
No wonder it doesn't have a name-- The Dom is so singularly impressive it doesn't need one!
