Before getting back to Japan, I visited Köln, only 1 hour by train from Frankfurt am Main. When I got out from Köln Hauptbahnhof (Cologne main station), what I saw blowed my mind and I couldn’t move for a while.
It’s HUGE. GR’s 28mm equivalent focal length was not enough to capture its entire silhouette. 157 meters height is close to 40 stories building, and building of the Cologne Cathedral took 632 years.
Gerhard Richter’s stained glass, which was one of the reason for me to visit Colonge.
Kolumba is a museum built by Peter Zumthor in 2007. Modern architecture on top of collapled ancient church and the remains of ancient Rome.
Unfortuantely Museum Ludwig was closed, so I just walk around the town for the rest of the time, and get back to Frankfurt.
