Walking Tour through the medieval Cologne by Claudia Lupri on 8th May 2019

Today we had again the pleasure of a special Cologne tour by our favourite guide, Claudia Lupri, of the Frauengeschichtsverein. The theme  was Medieval Cologne, one aspect we hadn’t covered before on our many walks. Although it was pouring rain, 16 of us showed up in front of the cathedral, geared with umbrellas and raincoats, for an hour’s tour. We started in the parking garage under the Dom, where you can still find some roman remains, but also we were introduced the escape hole of Archbishop Anno through which he escaped in 1074 from the Cologne merchands. We moved on towards the east side of the Dom to have a distint look at a medieval baptismal bassin and further to Alter Markt and ending at Groß St Martin. As always, Ms Lupri gave us a vivid account of a small part of Cologne’s history. No matter how many different tours we have had, there is always something new to learn about our ‘adopted’ home city.
