City Trip Cologne

Many guests visit Cologne because of the world famous cathedral and most stay because of the refreshing Kölsch! This belongs to Cologne like the mighty Hohenzollern Bridge and its more than 2000 years of history.

Cologne is carnival, Cologne is football. The people of Cologne know how to party. Celebrate on a city trip to the Rhine!

Arrival to Cologne

To arrive in Cologne at the central station in the city center, it takes just 4 hours on a relaxed train journey from Basel. Those who prefer to fly to Cologne have only a little more than an hour from Zurich, Basel or Geneva with a nonstop flight.

Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany and the largest in North Rhine-Westphalia and is known for its 2,000 years of history, its cultural and architectural heritage as well as for its internationally important events.

«Kölle alaaf» and all sorts of sights

The Cologne Carnival is on everyone's lips and can be compared with the Bavarian Oktoberfest. During carnival there are various festivals, such as Viva Colonia or the laughing Kölnarena. The highlight, however, is the Rose Monday. If you like the carnival, then a city trip to Cologne during the carnival time is recommended.

But Cologne has more to offer than just the carnival. For example, a visit to the cathedral or an event in the Lanxess Arena is part of a city break.

In order to visit the sights of the city, it is best to rent a bicycle in good weather. You do not have to climb big hills, because the city is very flat and you can cycle through the streets comfortably and effortlessly.

Nobody can deny a "Kölsch" in honor ...

Also almost obligatory is the tasting of a "Kölsch", the Cologne beer.

A great place to test this is the Brauhaus Früh, which is located directly opposite the Cologne Cathedral. You will love the rustic and cozy restaurant.
