Day 12: we took it a little slow this morning in rainy Cologne and stopped for lattes at McDonald’s (so amazing that they have actual espresso machines) before checking out the Cologne Cathedral. It was under construction from 1248 to 1880, and then miraculously remained standing in WW2 even when the rest of Cologne was basically flattened. The huge Gothic spires are over 500 feet tall!
