    Hey peepz, if you are in Cologne, there are also another spots to looka at and walk through except the Cathedral and the Rhine Promenade.  Just pls take a bit of your time to walk through the stinky and narrow Höhestrasse and at the end of this bloody street you'd come accross the Schildergasse if you turn right.

    Stil think its not worth it?

    Pls let Mr. Wiki says something:

    The Schildergasse is a shopping street in central Cologne, Germany, and with 13,000 people passing through every hour, it is the busiest shopping street in Europe.The Schildergasse is a designated pedestrian zone and spans about 500 meters from Hohe Straße on the Eastern end to Neumarkt on the Western end.

    The street dates back to Roman times, where it was the city's Decumanus Maximus. During the Middle Ages it was home to artists who painted coats of arms where the street got its name from (Schild meaning Shield). Among today's landmarks on Schildergasse are St. Antoniter church, the oldest Protestant church in Cologne, and Peek & Cloppenburg's Weltstadthaus, designed by Renzo Piano.
