Cologne
info Rheingarten
closeCologne, founded 2000 years ago by the Romans, is one of the oldest cities in Germany. The twelve Romanesque churches and the famous cathedral attest to how important the city was as a religious center.
Today Cologne has a relaxed, almost provincial atmosphere. Its historic center is ideal to explore on foot. Besides the many ecclesiastic buildings the city also offers a number of interesting museums and historic structures such as the eclectic Rathaus and the Gothic Gürzenich.
