I love old ruins. Lucky I came to Europe because the continent is FULL of them.

There is just something about the fragility of things that really makes you see a country for the way it once was.

The ruins of Alt St. Alban Church is no different.
I found this beautifully well preserved site when stumbling around lost in Cologne's Old Town.
The area wasn't too busy which meant I could take some eerie photos without a bit of someones head stepping in.

I really liked this spot and I hope you do too.

The ruins of this beautiful church have been lovingly kept together and should not be missed when touring Cologne’s Old Town sites. Located down the street from the Town Hall, the church is almost easy to miss as its façade practically disappears alongside its neighbors. The original church dated back to the 17th century, but was not rebuilt after being bombed in World War II. It’s a poignant reminder of the horror of war and a memorial to those who lost their lives.
