Tourist attractions and cultural events play a major role in the vibrant metropolis of Cologne. The city on the Rhine has plenty to offer in this regard.
Everybody is probably familiar with Cologne Cathedral, which is always worth a visit. But the city also offers many other attractive highlights to culture-focused travellers and Cologne residents alike. They range from the city’s museums and Romanesque churches to a wide spectrum of fountains and monuments.
You can walk through the quaint alleys of Cologne’s city centre, where you will find traditional buildings and innumerable breweries. An exciting contrast to this is posed by the ultramodern Rheinauhafen riverfront complex. The Cologne Opera, the Philharmonic Orchestra and the city’s many theatres offer a wide variety of concerts and other performances.
