On a very grey and chilly Monday morning last week, before any of the shops and cafes opened, I visited the Bonner Altstadt to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. As I walked under the canopy of pink flowers, I photographed the trees on the quiet Breite Straße and soaked in the beauty of springtime in Germany. It's my absolute favorite time of year.
Most churches I have seen in Germany have an attribute which makes them worth visiting. The flowering trees now blossoming in front of the Bonn Cathedral are the perfect welcome of April and spring.
