Left Amsterdam early for Germany and headed for Cologne. We stopped at the Cologne cathedral which was a very impressive sight. It was huge, fantastic carved stone walls and stained glass windows, and overall the size of it is breathtaking.
From there we headed for the Rhine river for a river cruise, we struck a slight problem when our tour guide was informed that the river was closed due to a boat that was stuck so we had to go further down the river for our cruise. Unfortunately further down the river was a 2 hour drive for us. When we got to where the boat picked us up we had a short time to look through the local village, it was very traditional and the area was surrounded by old castles.
After that we drove to Heidelberg, ha ha not the one in Melbourne! It was a very nice town again very traditional old German town , took some photos then headed to the town we are staying, Karlsruhe.
Since Holland we have found you have to pay about 50 cents to have a pee, Carol is using all the coins we have!
