Sights

Cologne
Cologne Cathedral:
The Gothic Cathedral not only is the city’s distinctive feature but also Germany’s most visited attraction



Cologne
Old Town:
Cologne’s Old Town has a distinctive historical charm. Visitors are drawn by its rustic narrow alleyways lined with traditional old houses. Innumerable breweries, pubs and restaurants invite passersby to linger. Here you can enjoy a draft Kölsch beer or try Cologne’s typical Halver Hahn sandwich.

Cologne
Rheinauhafen:
The newly designed, restructured Rheinauhafen waterfront complex is a young and attractive district of Cologne. The waterfront district features a mix of modern residential and office buildings interspersed with many cafés, restaurants, and galleries. The centerpiece of the new Cologne promenade is the trio of buildings called the “Kranhäuser” (crane towers), which rise to a height of about 60 meters. The buildings, which are shaped like hoisting cranes, are defining elements of the skyline on the west bank of the Rhine.

Cologne
Love lock:
The Hohenzollern Bridge in Cologne is a pilgrimage destination for lovers. Thousands of individually decorated “love locks” now decorate the bridge over the Rhine.



Carnival in Cologne

Motto 2016: Mer stelle alles op der Kopp  Given its Christian roots, the date of Rose Monday is determined by the Church calendar: It takes place on the Monday before Ash Wednesday, which in turn marks the beginning of Lent leading up to Good Friday and Easter. Traditionally, the fifth season is declared open at 11 minutes past eleven on the eleventh of November! The Carnival spirit is then temporarily suspended by the Advent and Christmas period, and picks up again "in earnest" in the New Year. Street carnival, also called "the crazy days", takes places between Thursday (Women’s Carnival Day) before Rose Monday and ends on Ash Wednesday.
