Ferries to Dunkerque: Cologne offers great attractions03.12.2009
People taking ferries to Dunkerque could continue their trip to a German city which always puts on a show at Christmas time, according to one newspaper.
The Daily Telegraph reported that Cologne has seven interesting Christmas markets as well as the Dom, which is known as one of the greatest Gothic buildings in Europe.
"Readjust your focus: the Dom"s treasures are on a much smaller scale. Among the highlights [is] the great 13th-century gilded sarcophagus containing the relics of all Three Kings," it stated.
The newspaper said that the medieval centre of Cologne remained intact despite heavy bombing during World War Two and still has classic beer kellers and excellent museums.
As well as Christmas markets, German cities like Berlin also offer great cycling routes, including one along the Berlin Wall which runs the length of the structure that separated the eastern and western parts of the city.
