Is there anything better in life than eating a cheese pretzel and drinking aÂ cappuccinoÂ while overlooking a gorgeous cathedral in Germany? Â Okay, a lot of things, but not when you’re on vacation.
The last stop along the Rhine River while cruising aboard the AvalonÂ Panorama was Cologne, Germany, home to theÂ KÃ¶lner Dom, a world heritage site cathedral and Germany’s most visited landmark. After exploring the city on a guided tour, my best friend and I were pretty beat (it was quite early in the morning) and with the weather in Cologne alternating between dreary and cloudy and actual rain, we decided the best bet would be to go to a coffee shop. Overlooking theÂ KÃ¶lner Dom, Kamps is the largest craft bakery chain in Germany. The cute little shop serves amazingÂ cappuccinos, brie sandwiches with freshly baked bread topped with mutant sized sunflower seeds, and of course, cheese pretzels. While in Germany, I developed a crazy addiction to cheese pretzels. I was on a mission, like Harold and Kumar, except I was looking for the most amazing cheese pretzel of them all. Sadly, I never found the holy grail of cheese pretzels, but I did enjoy a rather delicious one at Kamps. Between the foamyÂ cappuccino, cheesy pretzel and amazing view, I think this may have been one of the nicest mornings on the whole trip. We really felt like we were experiencing Cologne the way it was meant to be experienced; sipping aÂ cappuccino, having good conversation and being surrounded by locals.
