Visit on the 15th

by pieter_jan_v

I'm at Cologne down town next week friday, december 15.

If you are around in the afternoon we could have a short VT-hallo meeting enjoying some gluhwein or whatever Cologne goodies are around.

Hi PJ, I might make it to meet you as I've got basketball practice at 7 PM in Cologne, so I could leave work a bit earlier than usual and be there at 4 or 5 for a pre-practice warming up ;)

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

We are on a daytrip by bus which leaves at 7PM from somewhere downtown.
Any suggestion for a time/place we both cannot miss?

Yep let's try the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen in front of Früh's Brauhaus, just outside the Domplatte x-mas market.

I shall write an email to the local VT gang -- see whether they can come along too.

DEAL!

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

I'll try to be there 4:30 -- it's a bit difficult to be punctual this time on Fridays though coming straight from work. In case it rains, if I remember it correctly, there's a small roofed passageway towards the pedestrian zone, some 50 metres away, with I think some kind of Starbucks shop bordering it.

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

by pieter_jan_v

No Starbucks (the nearest is located at the Trankgasse North of the Dom).

Meeting point: Heinzelmännchenbrunnen, corner of the Roncalliplatz and Am Hofeckerweg (NW-corner)??

PJ

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

by RhineRoll

Hmmm whatever it was, some kind of cafe/coffe house. But the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen is impossible to miss -- right in front of Früh's Am Dom, so let's definitely meet there! (might be SW rather than NW)

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

by pieter_jan_v

OK in front of the Brunnen.

So, wake up Colognians!

hm most of VT-Cologne and surroundings seems to be rather absent or busy doing other things :( Looks like it will be just the two of us

RE: RE: Visit on the 15th

Does it help when I say I have a Miffy for Sabsi and a free beer for Horsheck?

Travel Tips for Cologne

Gereon Mill Tower

by yooperprof

The Gereonmühlenturm - Gereon Mill Tower - dates from the middle of the 15th century, and is located on a surviving segment of the old city wall, on the Hansaring. It's a nice area of the city, with parks, playgrounds and gardens. Nearby, however, is a remember of more disturbing and violent times: a memorial to the nearly 1000 people who were killed by the Nazis here in the waning days of World War II.

River Cruise

by keeweechic

A River Cruise is well worth taking (short or long), down the wonderful Rhine River. Several companies are offering round trips (1-2 hours) as well as evening trips.

Starting point is the Franken-Shipyard near the old part of town.

Fly to Amsterdam and take the...

by chelley

Fly to Amsterdam and take the ICE train - make sure you book tickets together if more than one person is travelling as the second and third travellers etc get increasingly large discounts on the ticket price!!
On the U bahn if you are going some distance - otherwise use your feet!!

Organic German Food

by sabsi about Guten Abend

We came here for a small VT meeting in 2007, a recommendation by Richard (docu2001). Before we entered we made jokes about organic food and nobody of us could imagine us really having an organic dinner. How wrong we were! The food was very tasty, so were the wines. I remember that the restaurant looked more like an old fashioned brewery type of place than like a modern restaurant. Everything else is blurred because I laughed so much that evening... I had an organic Wiener Schnitzel with potato salad. It was huge and gorgeous! And the pig lived a happy life before it ended on my plate ;)

The Incredible Cathedral

by NateWill22

If you imagined this cathedral as just another collosal gothic structure, you would be wrong. Even if it sounds boring, standing under the two 515 foot towers is an experience one can't put into words. It's amazing, humbling, and awe-inspiring.
