Get to know Cologne with Viator

With its liberal identity, lively brewery scene, and popular Carnival festival, Cologne welcomes visitors with joie de vivre. Home to Germany’s greatest Gothic cathedral, the cultural hub also hosts an abundance of museums–covering everything from chocolate to world-class art–and a quaint Old Town lined with colorful historic houses. Meanwhile, pretty parks, gardens, and bike paths along the Rhine River offer a respite from the city buzz.
