    Greetings,
    Will be in Cologne Germany next month (April 2015). Are there any must-see's in the aviation (or even general history) vein nearby?
    Would appreciate any and all opinions!
    Jon

    Obviously the Cathedral, but Chris (Der Adler is Gelandet) can probably offer more suggestions as to what's worth seeing in and around the city.

    Definitely make a visit to the Cathedral...there is a great deal of history there.

    I was thinking of just that photo, and the original series of wartime prints, when I posted my reply.

    There are many great things in Cologne. It is an amazing city. Been there many times.

    Must sees:

    Cologne Cathedral
    The 12 churches in the old city
    Kölner Rathaus
    Overstolzenhaus
    The 3 medieval gates
    EL-DE Haus (Nazi Documentation Museum)
