COLOGNE

Germany
8°C Nov

A city famous for its perfumes and cathedral

Book flights to Cologne and shop around the Neumarkt or admire the Rathaus and the illuminated Hohenzollernbrücke. Towering high above the other buildings, the Cologne Cathedral is an eye-catching monument. Climb up the 157-metre-high clock tower for a beautiful view of the city. Travelling with the whole family? Admire the snow panthers and grey owls at the Kölner Zoo. Or ride the steepest wild water slide in the world at Phantasialand, just outside of the city!

Enjoying the Altstadt

The historic Altstadt near the Cathedral is a popular destination. Not just to shop or have a drink on a patio, but also to visit museums, such as the Museum Ludwig, where you can admire modern art from Andy Warhol to Picasso. The Cathedral is also where one of the most famous Christmas markets in Germany is held. Bring on those dark winter days! Cologne is not only perfect for a city trip but also makes a great starting point for a longer holiday in Germany. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Cologne now!

The fragrance of Cologne

Cologne is famous for the 4711 brand of eau de cologne (hence the name). Perfumery Farina-Haus still sells the most wonderful fragrances. Or learn more about the brand in the museum! The Rhine cuts through the heart of the city. Take a cable car for a fun ride across the river. On a sunny day enjoy a bike ride along the river bank and look at the pleasure boats and cargo ships. For a fun night out, visit the artistic neighbourhood Belgisches Viertel. Or sample a local beer at one of the breweries on the Neumarkt!
