  • came upon this by chance as we walked around the city. gate is locked so you can't go in, but there's not much to see inside anyway. a sculpture with an explanation, a ruined building and that's it.  more »

  • This cathedral was massively damaged during WW2 and it was purposely retained as what does it look like after the war. Not a huge place to visiting but it is same impressive.
  • Most churches in Köln were nothing more but ruins after World War II. This one is still a ruin and now a place of remembrance for the victims of the war. Inside, there's a copy of the famous grieving parents statue by Käthe Kollwitz that she created for her son Peter that died in World War I. Joseph Beuys copied the father figure, Erwin Heerich, the mother figure. However, the alignment is different and less beautiful when compared with the original statues on the war graveyard in Vladslo (Diksmuide, Belgium).
  • One always finds something new out of the old Cologne. Only the eyes stop 😊
