While strolling the Heumarkt you will see the prominent statue of Fredrick Wilhelm III of Prussia. You can explore the carvings and take a rest on the lower pedestal. He ruled Prussia during the Napoleonic Wars.

I can't write too much, other than to say it's very impressive, very clean, easy to find and again completely free! Cologne really isn't out to make money from tourists.

If you are walking around the Altstadt visit the Heumarkt (Hay Market) and take a look at yet another equestrian statue. There are plenty of cafes and bars closeby.

Equestrian statues are to be found all over the world and Germany is no exception. Cologne alone has four on the Hohenzollernbrücke (two on both sides of the bridge) representing Prussian emperors, and a fifth one on Heumarkt, by Gustav Blaeser and Hermann Schievelbein, representing...More
