By rail bus around Cologne
Today it was all about Cologne and a historic railbus. Of course, this requires a tiger-appropriate strengthening in the morning. Fortunately, on the way to the train station, there was a bakery that had a hearty Mettbrötchen for breakfast. Arrived at the station my way led me to the sausage stand and the inevitable second...

Between 1924 and 1934 dams were set up here across the “Dutch Swiss”, roads were cut, bridges were built and tunnels were dug to be able to...

The secret of the Chinese Dog – Day 2
René von Tiger – Consulting Detective Day 2 – A meeting of masters In the morning of the next day, a decent breakfast was to bring me to new strength. So I went to Speedy’s Sandwich Bar & Cafe, which had been recommended to me by my London colleague. I was amazed when I found...

René von Tiger – Consulting Detective Day 1 – Excitement in the palace I received the call for help from a colleague from London, who faced a seemingly unsolvable puzzle.

Buffoons at the Whisky-Depot Cologne
Today we had a whole horde of buffoons visiting us in the Whisky-Depot Cologne. Do not worry – all dear friends from the carnival-club “KG Kölsche Lotterbove e.V.” (Cologne Buffoons). I have asked my brother Pierre and my service staff to properly host and entertain on my behalf. Apparently, they did that so well that...

My first journey
I decided to get out of the house together with my service staff for a few days. From time to time Tiger needs fresh air. And where could the air be fresher than on the North Sea island of Borkum? I had booked my accommodation in the chic Villa Ems. Here there are cozy guest...
