So what did Cologne have to offer? Well while there wasn’t much in the way of stylishly clad folk, there was lots more to enjoy in the way of vintage stalls with some amazing jewellery, bags, beautiful silk scarves and food, food and more food. I sampled some pretty delicious waffles, pancakes, traditional German potato cakes… the list goes on. Trawling through the markets was made a whole lot easier with plenty of gluhwein, and with the overhead trees dressed in love-hearts and stars, I almost forgot how cold it was!
Being a chocolate lover, it would have been rude not to make an appearance at the Cologne Chocolate Museum. I'm now officially an expert on on all things chocolate! Check out a shots of chocolate making in action, a collection of old chocolate wrappers, oh and Kinder Surprise toys!
