  • A few blocks from the famous Cathedral is Cologne "Old Town." Wander around the cathedral area while you are in town and you will find yourself in the Alter Markt. I was impressed by the preservation ...  more »
  • Is a square flirtatious, flanked by many bars and restaurants (perhaps too many). The perspective from here to the different towers of the city is very interesting.

  • The Alter Markt is beautiful, especially at Christmas time. Its market it more relaxed and quieter then the ones nearby. Fantastic food and atmosphere.  more »

  • 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.
