Germany:Kölner Dom/Cologne Cathedral, Köln (UNESCO 1996 Wo rld Cultural Heritage Site)— City Landmark科隆大教堂(一)交通篇 2013/06/04

Frankfurt (2013) 121-1算準教堂英文導覽時間,一早到法蘭克福中央車站搭乘ICE820前往科隆,當時可全然不知Köln Messe/Deutz 並不等於 Köln Hauptbahnhof (next to Cologne Cathedral)!

Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof  is a grand building was designed by the architects Hermann Eggert (the entrance wing and the facades) and Johann Wilhelm Schwedler (the iron-and-glass-halls).

frankfurt central station 1 In terms of railway traffic, Frankfurt am Main Hauptbahnhof is the busiest railway station in Germany. By daily passenger volume, it ranks second together with Munich Central Station after Hamburg Central Station.

ICE分秒不差地停靠在Köln Messe/Deutz,可是教堂在哪? 哈—Köln Messe/Deutz railway station across the river Rhine is just about 400 m. away from Köln Hauptbahnhof.                 p.s. Cologne and Frankfurt am Main has a railway service with Deutsche Bahn InterCity and ICE trains stopping at Köln Hauptbahnhof, Köln Messe/Deutz and Cologne/Bonn Airport.

Koln (2013) 001The two stations are linked by the Hohenzollernbrücke, a six-track railway bridge with passenger walkways on each side. It is the most heavily used railway bridge in Germany and total length of the Hohenzollernbrücke is 409.19 m..

p.s. The three humped iron tied-arch Hohenzollernbrücke is one of the eight bridges crossing the river Rhine in the city of Köln. It crosses the Rhine at 688.50 km.                        Originally (1907-1911), the bridge was both a railway and street bridge; however, after its destruction in 1945 and its subsequent reconstruction, it was only accessible to rail and pedestrian traffic.

Koln (2013) 003Hohenzollernbrücke 的引橋兩側共有四座霍亨索倫王朝(Hohenzollern Dynasty)的普魯士國王和德意志皇帝的騎馬像。橋東側為腓特烈·威廉四世Friedrich Wilhelm IV( King of Prussia)和Wilhelm I (King of Prussia and the first German Emperor)。橋西側的是腓特烈三世Friedrich III (King of Prussia and German Emperor)和威廉二世Wilhelm II (the last King of Prussia and German Emperor)。它們象徵普魯士對萊茵河的統治。

既然趕不上導覽,就安步當車,慢慢在橋上欣賞萊茵河兩旁科隆城市的美景,也算是一得!

這個才是參觀科隆大教堂應該下車的Köln Hauptbahnhof!

Koln (2013) 276回程,聽從售票員的建議,改搭延著萊茵河畔的慢車,又是一個不在計劃裡的驚喜(如果可以,最好坐左側,視野較佳) 。
