What you can expect on our “Fascination Cologne Bike Tour”
You always wanted to know which cathedral spire is the higher one, what St. Agnes is all about and how many love locks hang on the Hohenzollern Bridge? On our “Fascination Cologne” bike tour, you’ll learn the most important and interesting facts about the metropolis on the Rhine!
Getting to know Cologne!
The traffic-safe route takes you to the most interesting attractions and shows Cologne’s diversity and flair both in the busy city center and outside the tourist centers.
You’ll cycle through the multicultural Eigelstein district and into the authentic Agnesviertel. Your guides will explain a lot about the city’s history, the pre- and post-war period, which is reflected in Cologne especially in the varied architecture. The tour continues through the northern spur of the green belt, to Fort X, a former fortification of Cologne, and past the Lentpark across the Zoobrücke to the Schäl Sick, the so-called “wrong side” of Cologne. But not everything is bad in the right bank of the Rhine: We cycle through the Rhine Park, the former site of the Federal Garden Show and along the Rhine promenade to the Hohenzollern Bridge, which is adorned with countless love locks. There are always great views of the Cologne skyline, the old town and the Rheinauhafen with the famous chocolate museum!
Cologne Bike Tour: the highlights!
Back on the cathedral side, the old city center awaits us, which not only reveals medieval history, but also suggests the Roman settlement origin. By bike we can easily meander through the small streets and discover hidden places. We cycle on through the Heumark and the Alter Markt and learn more about Kölsch, Klüngel and the legendary Cologne Carnival! And of course, a detour to the cathedral, one of the largest Gothic cathedrals must not be missed – an absolute highlight of this tour!
