It is not only the cathedral or the FC that make Cologne the most beautiful city in Germany for many people. From Roman times to the present, the people of Cologne developed a special kind of hospitality and shaped the metropolis on the Rhine with their lifestyle. The interplay of this striking lightness, which can be felt everywhere in the city, with the varied city history make Cologne an experience that is hard to resist.

Come with us on one of our theme tours through the city and let yourself be captured by the special Cologne lifestyle.
