Discover the City on your own
Irrespective of all the guided tours with professional city guides it is fun to wander round the city on foot by yourself, to »experience« it on bus or tram, or become acquainted with it by bike. The inner city with the many pedestrian precincts is very inviting for shopping; there are magnificent walks along the banks of the Rhine, and the many green belts and parks provide shaded pathways for summer strolls.
Cologne is the perfect opportunity for selecting routes according to the keynote themes and your own interests, whether it concerns Roman, medieval or Prussian Cologne, and whether you are in the centre or in the individual city areas. The »brewery crawl« is particularly enjoyable. It not only imparts information on the history and theory of the Cologne brewing skill, but the culinary aspect can be directly enjoyed at nearly every stop.
