After wandering around, we ended up checking out the Christmas market behind the Schloss.
Then we returned to Cologne and could not help taking some more pictures of the awesome Cathedral......
We decided to visit the Ludwig museum - one of the top museums in Cologne. Its main focus is on pop art alongwith a collection of Picassos. However I found the museum over rated and neither Chi Mee nor I got the pop art message.
On Sunday, Chi Mee decided to take me to Konigswinter in the Drachenfels which is a mountain range nearby. It has a narrow gauge train that takes you up the mountain from where one can have an extensive view of Cologne. The view was spectacular but it was freezing cold (-16C).
