Missed day one? Read it here. Sunday was our last day in Cologne, it had come around so fast! Feeling surprisingly fresh after the cocktails and lack of sleep the day before, myself and Lissa headed to the Chocolate museum to meet Rachel and Hayley whilst the other guys split off to go to the spa.
The Chocolate museum was great fun and the smell of Lindt chocolate wafted throughout. It takes you through the history of various chocolate companies and shows you how the factories are run. Just a few weeks before I had gone to Cadbury’s World and to be honest I found that one more entertaining, and you got much more chocolate! However the views from this glass structure, which sits right on the Rhine, is stunning!
This is one of the most underrated parts of Cologne, so few people seem to know about it. The room is filled with skulls, bones and other such macabre items. The person who worked at the church couldn’t speak English, so I didn’t get the full story of why this was here but she did her best to point things out to us. Particularly striking where the heads in boxes, and the bones spelling out words high on the roof. It was fascinating and well worth the trip!
