  • This is one of the six squares where one can visit the beautiful Christmas market. Is part of old town. Apart from the many Christmas market there are a lot of restaurants and cafes in the immediate vicinity. Very friendly and helpful.

  • This is a very central square, with numerous attractions, restaurants and cafés surrounding it. There was a lovely Christmas market nearby (including a small ice-skating ring).

  • Beautiful outdoor square, near to the Dom, shopping and the Rhine river. Filled with great small places to eat and drink Koelsch. All have outdoor seating to dine or drink al fresco, weather permitting.
  • Well worth a visit, as are most areas of Cologne. There are a great selection of bars and restaurants around here.
  • Right near the church and the river front..beautiful weather and people around..you can relax here for hours :-)
  • Amazing scenery in an old town square. The only bad thing are the tourist traps...
  • A good and nice place to see while walking around the old town.
