This Köln surprise card came from Sarah who says she could often be found in some of the cafes one could see on this card.
Cologne was heavily destroyed in WWII bombing so not much is left of the old town. Still, some places were carefully reconstructed and now display the narrow cobbled streets and picturesque houses of the Old Town. The area was once threatened by the floods of the Rhine. Today it is full of cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops directed towards the tourists that start to wander these streets after they explore the Cathedral and nearby museums.
