Rhine, end of bicycle tour, Cologne

Its been a busy day. It started early in the morning in Spay, where we had spent the night. From there we cycled to Boppard where we took the ferry to the other side of the Rhine. It was actually quite stunning. Its like a small boat carrying people, bikes and even cars from side to side.

We cycled to St Goarshausen where we had another awesome apfelstrudel.

Then we took another ferry to St Goar, where we climbed towards the Rheinsfel. We decided not to get inside the castle but watch the really great view.

Then we cycled to view the legendary Loreley rocks from the opposite side.

Then we went to the train station in St Goar which was really tiny. We went back to Koblenz, retuned the bikes, took the luggage and started heading towards Cologne. By that we finished our bicycle tour!

We arrived in Cologne and met my friend Ilka. The first thing we noticed is how huge the train station is.

Getting out of the station, the impressive Dom stands out.

Ilka took us to her apartment, and then we went to a local Jazz club.

Cologne is very busy during the night. Lots of people everywhere. Ilka showed us around, and we crossed a bridge having an endless amount of locks attached to, symbolizing the love of many couples.

And of course it is possible to see the Dom during the night.

Before finishing our day we went dancing in a local club. Yet we did not stay for long, as we crashed in our bed after this very full day.
