Oh, and another benefit of staying at the Hilton Cologne hotel, is that you can reach a Kamps bakery in under five minutes by exiting the hotel, turning right and heading in the direction of the Dom. Although you can enjoy your iced treat whilst admiring the Cathedral out of the floor-to-ceiling windows at Kamps, it can also be nice to enjoy them from the comfort of your own hotel room. Heaven!
After various dives into warm stores including Douglas (ah, such beautiful gift wrapping!) and Kaufhof (Galeria), we continued on to our second Christmas market visit of this year's trip! On that note, I hope you've had an incredible festive season and have enjoyed the first instalment of my Cologne experience.. it's certainly been enjoyable reminiscing!
