Full description
Go on a guided walking tour of Cologne, one of Germany’s oldest cities. Experience 2,000 years of history as you see the city’s iconic landmarks and architecture, from the relics of the Roman founders to the 21st century. Learn about German brewing and optionally taste a sample. Start at Cologne Cathedral that features Gothic architecture that took centuries to build. Learn about the rich history of this church. Then, walk to the Romano-Germanic Museum through the bustling street where people, street musicians, and other artists frequent. Look through the windows and spot a very impressive mosaic. Just 1,800 years ago, parties were celebrated here. Next, discover how much Germans and especially the people of Cologne love beer. Learn about the city’s almost 1,000-year-old brewing traditions and pub etiquette. Hear how all waiters in Cologne have the same name. Before moving on, taste a sample if you’d like. After, visit the oldest city hall in Germany and take a look at the place where cologne (perfume) was invented. Walk through the busy squares of the old city and pass by the monument of the two citizens of Cologne, Tünnes and Schääl.
