germany. cologne. rheinauhafen with instagram.

a huge cactus and one of three “kranhäuser” (crane houses) at rheinauhafen, an urban regeneration project situated along the rhine river in the south of cologne.

the 3 houses are build to resemble the old harbour cranes…

… which still can be found around the area.

kids playing in the nearby fountain on one of the hottest days of this summer (so far).

old & new side by side


the “südbrücke” (south bridge), one 7 bridges crossing the rhine in cologne. the bridge marks the end of rheinauhafen, from here on you’ll find tree-lined walkways along the river.

[strolling along rheinauhafen in the evening sun has been one of my favourite things to do this summer.]
