#15 inside the museum surveillance is ubiquitous

next batch
#20 rather concrete all natural monochrome
#21 Roman Emperors are pictured as gay bodybuilders not because the really looked that way, but because this was the beauty ideal of the time
#22 another rooftop couple. I do not think they really dared to perform, other couples wrote their names onto the roof to say "we did it here"
#23 in one of the churches a man was drawing

In a city full of churches I could not help to visit 5 of them:

Dom
St. Ursula
St. Kunibert
St Maria Lyskirchen
Groß St Martin

AND find organs there. This is the

#26 Kuhn Organ in St Kunibert (handheld panorama with some small faults, 172 Megabyte)
#27 Manual of #26
#28 St. Maria Lyskirchen Organ under the roof
#29 Groß St. Martin, a Choir Organ only but quite a piece

I love Cologne, one of my favorite cities. Thanks for your view on the city.

'The Rhineview with soldier', is that Barbarossaplatz?

No, it is a window perspective from the "Museum Ludwig" by the Dom. In the back you can see the Ebertplatz with the AXA Colonia Building

One of the great Grand Hotels in the City center is being renovated. It is situated directly at the Dom. Currently it resembles the look of the Colosseum in Rome quite well. Seen from different perspectives in my little series:

#30 partial view of Hotel with Asian tourists posing
#31 full view of Hotel from above
#32 Collosseum look alike contest
#33 star gazing tourists in front of Hotel
