The Hof

main station in Cologne
Spent a couple of hours in a lovely restaurant with a view of the cathedral. It was called ‘Hof 18’. Given the Germans’ fixation with David Hasslehoff, I was gleeful that this might be a reference to the red-swimming-trunked one. Gleeful until Simon pointed out that ‘hof’ means ‘station’ in German and that we were near the main railway station. Great food. Tasty and nutritious. Amazing considering that everything I ordered was a complete guess as I couldn’t read the menu. We tried to get a look at the cathedral, but a service was taking place, and it was packed. Not surprising on a Sunday before Christmas.
