I’ve left my mouse at home so blogging is a sod. Treat this as a “contractual obligation” post for my Patronised readers who expect a post and artisanal beer and food matching recommendation daily.
4th November 2022.
Well, that’s tough, as this is a post about Cologne shopping centre as a follow-on to Pauline’s comment the other day.
From the Lommerzheim we headed back west to the Alstadt,
the bridge providing the best views of the trip, both towards the Dom,
and south to what I can only assume are houses on stilts.
Mrs RM had been delighted to find confirmation of what she’d long suspected.*
But I can’t be all bad, as I let her stop for coffee and sticky cake at the first opportunity.
Pauline is right; a lot of central Cologne feels like a giant shopping centre built on a bomb site, and I guess it is.
But it’s pedestrianised, has plenty of musical entertainment,
and seemed genuinely quirky.
Nothing much ornate or medieval, but the shops and cafes were packed, and this was before the Christmas markets.
But where’s the pubs, you demand?
*Why do they pick on Martins ?
