Koln (Cologne, Germany)

 

Sunday, May 21, 2017

One of my former church choir directors, Steven Handrigan, told us about this fabulous Cathdral in Cologne, Germany after he took his students from the St. Mikes Choir School to sing there.  You could tell it was a church that really impressed him by the gleam in his eyes every time he talked about it.  So I decided it would have to be on my bucket list.  So off I went with Maria and Falitza.

Here is some of what we saw.

It was enormously tall and black.  A stark contrast from the Duomo in Milan that was also very intricate, but pristine white.

The stain glass windows inside were most colourful and bold depicting pictures of Mary, Christ and the apostles.  They were quite beautiful.

Street painters.

And a homeless duck… with a pint of German beer of course!
