Exploring Cologne's Charming Old Town


The old houses with their traditional European feel make the Old Town of Cologne a quaint and charming place. It's fun to explore the narrow alleys within the city on foot - even if just to soak in the atmosphere. When you've had your fill of monuments and fountains and you're ready to move inside, there's plenty of choices. Restaurants, pubs and breweries are ready to satisfy your need for food. But, if it's more sightseeing you are looking for, the Cologne Cathedral, historic City Hall, museums and more will be waiting for you!

Social Media Description

Have you taken a river cruise?

Our one and only river cruise (to date) was along the Rhine River in 2014. The Viking Sun took us from Amsterdam to Basel, Switzerland. When we arrived in Cologne, our group of 4 decided to go off and explore the city on our own. We enjoyed wandering up, down and all around the streets and narrow alleyways. It's fun to just look at the colorful buildings (home to pubs, inns, gastro-bars, restaurants ...) from the outside. But, we are glad that we took time to go "inside" in Cologne as well - we loved our dinner and so much more in this city along the Rhine.

What river cruises have you most enjoyed ... or which rivers would you like to cruise? (We want to cruise the Mississippi and the Danube!)
