Cologne (GamesCom + Dome)

Hello Muggles,

as I said before I went to this years GamesCom, which is a huge (video-)game fair, on Thursday.

Unfortunately this year it was quite boring. There haven't been any super interesting new games and the fact that Nintendo didn't show up this time made me a little upset. Actually there is not much to say except that there were a lot more people than the last couple of times I went there... and it was hot and often a little stinky. :D

I will just show you some pictures - enjoy! :)

Look, who we met. :)

I love Yoshi! He's the cutest and I actually bought a little
one for my key, which you can see down below. :)

The shoes!! o.o She was exhausted, I can tell!

This is my key 2.0 :) With little Lego-Hermione and Yoshi on it. *.*

Of course, my boyfriend HAD to take a picture with these beauties!


So after GamesCom being a little disappointing, we (my boyfriend, nephew and another friend of ours) decided to visit Colognes city centre to get something to eat and enjoy the sun. :)

This is what you can see of the Dome of Cologne when being at the fair.

And this is what it looks like when you leave the central station. There are always many interesting people in front of it, so if you're in Cologne you obviously have to visit the dome but also watch the many, many freaky people around it! :D

Here's another one... it just looks so creepy because the Dome is massively huge and you always look up to it, which makes the whole thing veeery frightening! ;)

This is a part from the inside - very pretty and impressive!

Impressive, as I just said. You can't believe how big and detailed and gold this "picture" is... and it's in 3D, too! Trendsetting artists, hu? xD

This is probably the strangest thing ever... The remains of the three Magi are supposed to be in there if I got this correctly. I'm not religious at all, so please don't see it as an offense if I'm not that convinced.

 Sooo, that was it from my exciting day in Cologne! I think there will be more posts about this pretty city, as I am going to be a student there very soon. :)

I hope you liked this post and found it interesting - leave a comment, if you'd like to, please! :)
