Explore Cologne

Embark on a guided tour, discovering the many highlights of Cologne, home to elegant squares and beautiful Romanesque churches. Admire the narrow pastel-coloured houses set out along the winding streets of the city's Old Town, as well as the twin-spired Gothic cathedral, which was once one of the tallest buildings in the world. Your tour ends at one of the many traditional brewery taverns close to the Rhine, where you sample the excellent Kölsch beer - unique to Cologne.

Later, you are free to enjoy the festive atmosphere of Christmastime in Cologne. The city is Europe's unofficial Christmas market capital, boasting 7 individual Christmas markets, each with its own unique character. Festive chalets offer a selection of gifts, decorations, arts and crafts as well as traditional stalls selling sausages, waffles, wine, and beer. Perhaps visit the Maritime-themed market, next to the Rhine and the city's Chocolate Museum. Or, head to the market in Roncalliplatz, set beneath the cathedral, which has the biggest Christmas tree in the Rhineland.
