If you travel to Germany, you have to see the city of Cologne. It is famous for the extraordinary Carnival and the Dome. But in almost any part of the city you find beautiful places with nice architecture and lovely people.


The Cologne Waterfront is a very impressive part of the city. If you walk from the city center southwards, you get to an area, where sophsticated architectural buildings are situated.

The “Kranhäuser” are a landmark, which can be seen from far away. The “Crane-buildings” were developed by Linster, Bothe, Richter, Teherani and look like this:

If you continue your journey southbound, you get to the Oval Offices (Architects: Sauerbruch and Hutton) at the Railway station “Schönhauser Straße”.
