One of Germany’s most liberal cities, fun-loving Cologne has been a centre of culture and entertainment since Roman times. Whether you are exploring the quirky bars and independent shops in the cobbled Old Town or enjoying a local Kölsch beer after taking in the view from the top of the cathedral, you’re sure to fall in love with this friendly city.
Cologne offers a heady mix of historical architecture and modern culture, perfect for a city break.
- Cologne Cathedral towers over the city: climb the 533 steps to the top for a stunning view.
- Fun events take place throughout the year, including one of Europe’s biggest Gay Prides.
