T H E R H E I N A U H A F E N C O L O G N E THE CRANE HOUSE NORTH IN THE RHEINAUHAFEN AT NIGHT The RHEINAUHAFEN (Rheinau Harbour) is a young and very attractive district of Cologne (Germany). The Rheinauhafen waterfront complex is the transformation of the old trade harbour into a modern marina, business and living area. The centrepiece of the Rheinauhafen waterfront build the three buildings constructed in the shape of a crane called the "Kranhäuser" (Crane Houses). The most impressive feature of the Rheinauhafen is the combination of the old and modern architecture.

My intention of taking this photograph is to show the architectural beauty of the Severin Bridge with the dynamic lines and simple slender shape making a powerful appearance. THE SEVERIN BRIDGE AND ITS REFLECTION THE SEVERIN BRIDGE AND ITS REFLECTION The photograph shows the Severin Bridge mirroring in water which underlines the idea how bridges can be a harmonious part of the environment and that bridges besides their functionality also can create beautiful atmospheric images. THE SOUTHERN RAILWAY BRIDGE OVER THE RHINE THE SOUTHERN RAILWAY BRIDGE OVER THE RHINE The old-fashioned railway bridge makes a peaceful and powerful appearance of a deep friendship with the River Rhine. The bridge connects the busy business areas and the green recreation areas on the different sides of the river. The appearance of the bridge seems to invite to slow down and take a rest. The Southern Railway Bridge marks the southern end of the Rheinauhafen.
