After climbing the stairs at the Cologne Cathedral we all had worked up an appetite and we decided to finish our day by checking out Bona’me by Rhine river. A restaurant and lounge catering to your Turkish/Middle Eastern food cravings; Bona’me has combined great food, great price and modern decorations perfectly. Bona’me uses the “swipe your card as you order” system. It’s a convenient system since there’s no waiting time to get waited on and each person can walk up to a cooking station and personally order their own food in any way they want. It’s great, just don’t lose your card like I did at Vapiano, a similar style restaurant we visited during our trip.
Cologne Cathedral is a must see for anyone visiting Cologne, it’s see humbling to look at a monster of building and learn about its’ past and how it took almost 700 yrs to finish. This Gothic style building watches over all the other buildings since 1248 and I can’t even imagine the things it has witnessed and survived during all these years. We decided to take a look inside and eventually get ready to climb the 533 steps all the way up to the viewing platform (322 ft) above the ground to take a better view of the city.
