Gothic Architecture Abounds
Cologne’s history dates back to the 1st century, and we want to help you explore the city through the ages. Visit the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe, a landmark along the route of many significant pilgrimages. Try a traditional Himmel un Ääd, also known as heaven and earth, and learn how it got this delicious name. Check out the modern street art that brings the Altstadt (the Old Town) to life. There is so much to see and do in Cologne; discovering the city by bike is the best way to see it all!
Nestled along the Rhine river, Cologne is a city of old meets new. With over 12 Romanesque churches and plenty of museums to visit, traditional European culture abounds. Yet the booming cocktail and coffee culture combined with the annual international art fair attracts a much younger generation. You can walk along the cobblestone streets of the old city or pop into one of the modern shopping boutiques for the latest fashion.
We think the best way to explore the city is by bike. Join us for our Cologne Highlights Bike Tour and see and learn about the important landmarks that make this city unique. We’ll see the Kölner Dom Cathedral, ride along the Rhine, and visit the famous Tanzbrunnen for a much-deserved drink. Or, explore the artist scene in Cologne on our Street Art Tour. Marvel at the ever-changing murals that line the city streets and be surprised by some of the hidden art that our guides will show you. Either way, you are sure to learn about and see the best parts of Cologne.
