Explore: Cologne, Germany
Germany is an extremely picturesque country with several historical sights and landmarks to see throughout. One city that I am a personal fan of is Cologne. It is the 4th largest city in Germany and has a very interesting history. It was the most heavily bombed city during World War II, leaving about 95% of the city in ruins. That is why when it was being rebuilt, the government made an effort to preserve whatever historical buildings they could, which gave the city a mix of modern and classical architecture. One of the most famous medival buildings in the city is the Cologne Catherdal, which rivals Notre Dame in stature and beauty. It is also known for its art scene and has hundreds of museums for various subjects. In my opinion, any city that has a chocolate museum is worth checking out.
