The historic Old Town of Cologne is, I think, the best place to drink and eat in the city. Especially in the summer- when the searing temperature is on, and everyone is thirsty.
Based on historical records, 72% of the city was destroyed by World war II. However, much of the structures of the Old Town Cologne was rebuilt, but still true to its original form.
Before my friend showed me the Old Town center, we walked along the Rhine River. We passed by the Deutches Sports and Olympia Museum. Then, we dropped by the Cologne Chocolate Factory Museum (Schcoladen) where we had Lindt.
