Yesterday I met with [livejournal.com profile] hiyami who is on holiday in Cologne. We went to the Roman-Germanic-Museum where i haven't been since school. Unfortunately it rained the whole day so we couldn't walk around the city, but we had crêpe with Nutella instead ^_^ We also paid the Dom a short visit and I made a couple of pictures.

the cathedra, large picsl )

They have an exhibition at the RGM at the moment about the natural and cultural history of Northrhine-Westfalia (the state that Cologne is in). Lot's of fossils, coal etc. from place that I saw on short field trips at uni :-) They have a fossilized crocodile that once roamed the Rhine. A very cute clay roof tile, cute because it had dog footprints on it ^_^, from Roman times (and found in Bonn!). A dog grave (mit dem netten Titel "Da liegt der Hund begraben") and a very nice piece of juewlery (some kind of tiara/headband that was also used as a hair-net).

Most of the general exhibition stuff is from Roman times, some stone age stuff, a couple of exhibits from the "migration"-times (Langobards etc., some diplsay were empty because of redecoration) and from the Franks. But they also have a display (in the middle of roman statues and stones) of remains from WW2 German and British fighter aircrafts o.O They did look like they were as old as the roman stuff, very wracked and coverd in mudd.
