Top 3 thing to do in Cologne

Visit Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom):
Explore one of Germany’s most iconic landmarks, a magnificent Gothic cathedral that took over 600 years to complete. Admire its stunning architecture, climb to the top for panoramic views of the city, and learn about its rich history and significance.

Take a stroll along the Rhine River:
Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Rhine River that runs through the heart of Cologne. Walk along the promenade, soak up the atmosphere, and take in the picturesque views of the river, the Hohenzollern Bridge, and the city skyline. You can also opt for a relaxing river cruise to experience the city from a different perspective.

Explore the Old Town (Altstadt):
Immerse yourself in the charm of Cologne’s historic Old Town, with its narrow cobblestone streets, colorful houses, and lively atmosphere. Visit the historic squares, such as Alter Markt and Heumarkt, where you can find traditional pubs, local shops, and restaurants serving delicious Kölsch beer and regional cuisine. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the charming side streets and discover hidden gems along the way.

Cologne’s Food Guide

Kölsch Beer
Indulge in the local specialty beer of Cologne, Kölsch. This top-fermented beer is light, crisp, and served in small glasses called “Kölschstangen.” Visit a traditional brewery or pub in the city to experience the authentic taste and enjoy the lively atmosphere.

Rheinischer Sauerbraten
Try the traditional dish of Rheinischer Sauerbraten, which is a pot roast typically made from beef. The meat is marinated in a mixture of vinegar, water, and spices for several days, resulting in a tender and flavorful dish. It is often served with potato dumplings and red cabbage, offering a hearty and satisfying meal.

Kölsche Kaviar (Halve Hahn)
Don’t be fooled by the name, as Kölsche Kaviar has nothing to do with caviar. It is actually a local specialty sandwich made with rye bread, mustard, onions, and Gouda cheese. The name translates to “half rooster,” but it is a vegetarian dish. Enjoy this simple yet tasty snack that is beloved by locals and often paired with a glass of Kölsch beer.
