Cologne blew me away for many reasons, but one of the coolest things I saw is on the Hohenzollern Bridge near the Cathedral and Hauptbahnhof. Couples write their names on padlocks and then attach them to the chainlink fence which stretches across the Rhine river. If I had to guess, I’d say there are close to 10,000 locks on the bridge, which makes for quite a cool public monument. Some photos:
I want to see this.
