Mooning around Cologne

An Alter Markt (Old Market) landmark, this puckish lad is known (in the Kolsch dialect) as "dä Kallendresser."

You have to look up - way up - to find him. He's on the house that is known as "Em Hanen." The story goes that the owner of the property wished to display his complete and utter contempt of the city fathers. Artistic licence goes a long way here!

Kaiser Wilhelm Ring

The Inner Ring Road serves to define the limits of the center city. It essentially follows the 18th century defensive wall and fortifications. In the 19th century, following German unification, most of the wall was dismantled, and several parks created from the ramparts. This sylvan glade is an oasis of calm in the middle of one of the busier parts of the city.
