Favorite thing: Don't forget to cross at least one bridge in the city centre for great views of the city centre riverbanks from the opposite side. In fact, there are also some fun places to explore here, not just the huge trade fair. The train bridge has a pedestrian section to walk across which is a very rewarding walk.
Favorite thing: The Rhine waterfront makes quite a scenic view, especially from the nearby bridge. The river front is busy, with people, grassland, river boats and of course the might of the Cathedral behind.
Favorite thing: It's amazing just how big some of the barges are that use the Rhine. It must be a great boon to be able to keep that amount of traffic off the roads!
Standing by the river Rhine on a beautiful summer day was very nourishing after a long day of train travel!
Fondest memory: In the distance you can almost make out the Cathedral!
