Although Cologne is only the fourth largest city in Germany, you have to remember how large Germany is and when you consider that only Berlin, Hamburg and Munich are larger, you start to take in the scope of how large the city is. It has a bustling economy but the city also welcomes tourists from around the world on a regular basis. The city has definitely benefited from the rise of cheap flights in the past decade while of course the German transport system provides an easy route across the rest of the country.

There are plenty of different ways that you can make your way to Cologne including plane, train, bus or car, which means that there is a need for linking transport services too.

What To See In Cologne

With so many great options in Germany, you might overlook Cologne when it comes to tourist attractions and expeditions but this would be a mistake as there is plenty on offer in the city.

Traditions and Celebrations

One of the things you will find in Cologne is that the people are pedantic and punctual so if you arrange to meet a local at a certain time, make sure you arrive on time. In the business environment, this can be very important so bear this in mind.


When it comes to Cologne, there are plenty of museums to visit. One of the most famous museums in the area is the Roman-Germanic museum which hosts a number of important pieces of architecture and art pieces from Cologne throughout the years. If you would prefer to focus on the more modern side of art in Cologne, the Museum Ludwig is the place to see, with a Picasso collection that can only be bettered by Paris or Barcelona. There is also a great opportunity to view plenty of religious art by visiting the Museum Schnutgen.


As you would expect from a major German destination there are plenty of places to eat and drink in Cologne. There are many local breweries providing a taste that the locals love but if you are more focused on the dancing or club experience, you will find a lot to enjoy about Cologne. The main heart of the Cologne clubbing experience can be found on Zülpicher Straße or close to Friesenplatz. The city boasts of having the most clubs and pubs per head in the whole of Germany.

Main Attractions

The Cologne Cathedral claims to be Germany’s most visited tourist attraction so this is definitely a place you will want to visit. The Cologne Opera is world famous and with a town hall that is close to 900 years old, you will not fail to find plenty to enjoy in your time here.
