    Day 7, Köln (Cologne)

    7:00 - 9:00 Breakfast
    9:00 am TD Andrea provides intermittent river commentary
    12:00 - 1:30 Buffet lunch
    2:00 Inspire arrives Köln
    2:15 gather for short walking tour of the city and a visit to the Köller Dom cathedral
    Afterwards return to the boat or stay in town to see one or more of the six large markets until 3:30, 4:30 or 5:30

    It is a toss up whether Köln or Strasbourg had the most and largest Christmas Markets. I wish we had the time and energy to see more of Köln's markets.

    I left out a number of shipboard activities that added to the enjoyment of this tour, e.g. Christmas trivia contest- our team got second, gingerbread house decorating contest (another second), and a few others.

    Day 8 is normally fly-home day, but we took a DB train to Hamburg to see Miniatur Wunderland, the largest model layout in the world.

    The two of us and our friend and TD Heidi.

  • Alan - Miniature Wunderland is cool, the ultimate geekdom for an engineer. :D

  • So very cool, Alan! That had to have been a highlight of the trip! Happy Holidays!
