Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - Travel & Lifestyle Hipster Blog When I was working on a travel guide to Cologne of the best Youth Hotspots in Germany, I took some time to research Cologne’s major tourist attractions. Sightseeing in Cologne was pretty much what I expected: there aren’t many sites, but wandering around the city lost provided plenty of opportunities to discover cool things to do. From the travel planning I did before my trip (on Pinterest, naturally), I realized there really are only a handful of major tourist attractions.
Besides the massive Cologne Cathedral, it seems one of the most recommended places to visit is the city’s Love Lock Bridge: Hohenzollernbrücke. The bridge is easily accessible and I was surprised to find as many love locks as there actually are. Must be millions of them.
I realize these kinds of things are pretty cheesy — but the hundreds of colors and the inscriptions and engravings made it more interesting than it may initially seem. Plus the bridge makes for some great photos. My Experience Visiting the Cologne Hohenzollern Bridge for the First Time As I stepped onto the Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne, Germany, the scent of the brisk Rhine River filled my lungs.
It was a chilly autumn afternoon, and the city’s skyline was bathed in warm hues of orange and gold, a stark contrast to the steel-gray love locks that adorned the bridge’s iron railings. Each padlock held a story, a promise, or a memory—testaments of love that have transcended time. I hadn’t come to this iconic bridge to leave a love lock of my own.
