Koln – River tour

December 12, 2008

On Sunday afternoon we took a leisurely one hour tour (not an ill fated three hour tour) up the Rhine.
Above is the view down the river as we are standing on the shore.
The pictures above and below are of the same buildings, one on the way up the river and the other as we came back by down the river.

Below is a park where there were several people flying kites.

Below are some extremely odd shaped buildings still in construction phase (notice 2 construction cranes). These look more like something we’d see in Dubai, although there they would have to be 100 stories high and rotate, or something.

Below is the view of the Dom as we are coming back to the dock.
It was a very pleasant way to spend an hour and I especially liked that I could do it sitting down. Much easier on the feet. The sun came out and I had to actually wear my sunglasses. What’s that about!
