Feeling a little rough on waking but restored by strong coffee, german  bread, eggs, mozarella and tomato salad, ham etc... yum. Cruised over to the cathedral and walked around the area for a bit. The train station backs onto the cathedral and there is a pretty railway bridge crossing the Rhine which is covered in thousands and thousands of engraved padlocks. The tradition is apparently for couples to engrave their names on the padlocks, lock them onto the bridge and throw the key into the Rhine - a nice idea and quite impressive to look at.
