Cologne Cathedral from the Rhine River

Spent a half day in Cologne, Germany and sailed off in the evening going under the Hohenzollern Bridge which was built in 1907 and finished construction in 1911 and then partially destroyed by German engineers in March 1945 to prevent Allied troops from entering the city. It now carries over 1200 train cars a day over the Rhine and is one of the busiest bridges in Europe. There was a train crossing the bridge as the picture was snapped.
