School class bike tour Cologne: Sightseeing by bike
Of course, we plan our bike tours, considering the age structure of the participants, so that the route can be mastered by all and the tour at the same time remains interesting. Explanations of the history of the city, facts about the most important sights and anecdotes about life in Cologne are age-appropriate and interactive.
Have you already discussed the individual stages of urban development in history class or learned something about different architectures in your art class? Then please bring your knowledge or prepared presentations and reports on Hohenzollern Bridge, Cathedral, Chocolate Museum and Co! Our experienced guides design your bike tour in such a way that there is enough time for you to exchange ideas.
Picknick in the park
From the bench to the park! Bring provisions with you and make a short picnic stop with your group with a view of the Rhine, the cathedral and the Hohenzollern Bridge, or the old town! But of course, our guides also know nice cafés, kiosks or shops en route, where you can strengthen yourself with small snacks or drinks in between!

University excursions to Cologne
Urban geography, history, sociology, economics, architecture, etc. We know the most interesting places in Cologne for each topic and offer you the opportunity to authentically experience “seminar knowledge” during an excursion. Our trained guides will be happy to work out an individual bike tour for you on your desired topic. Popular topics are “Cologne’s urban planning” or “gentrification – pros and cons”. Just talk to us!
We have enough bicycle helmets in stock in all sizes and we move along traffic-safe routes. In this way we can guarantee the greatest possible safety for all participants of our bike tours. Some of our guides are trained teachers or have studied education and are particularly looking forward to showing you Cologne from the saddle!
For the sake of safety and so that your bike tour remains manageable, we will use two or more guides as soon as your group is more than 15 people.
For a short picnic break en route, you can arrange a meeting point with your guides before the start of the tour.
