  • Duftmuseum im Farina-Haus is quite an informative museum. It is dedicated John Maria Farina and the wonders produced by him.  more »
  • This is only 5 Euro and 1 hour... not much to lose here and it was actually very informative. You learn the history behind the first cologne and the maker Farina. If you have an hour to spare I do.....  more »
  • At the Castle Augustusburg Palace in Bruhl a short 15 min train ride from Koln. I personally prefer Eau de Cologne 4711. But the history of this scent is non the less very interesting.  more »
  • As we started our tour everyone got a little spray of the Eau De Cologne, it smelled great on my friend but on me it went spicy, which isn't bad just not a smell I like on myself! But the tour was great! Our tour guide spoke perfect English and we had no trouble understanding him! We got to smell many different natural smells, hear great stories, and learn about the original cologne and its maker! We ended up buying some beautiful perfumes!
  • We really enjoyed our visit to Farina Haus. We did a general English tour and the guide was really welcoming, knowledgeable and good humoured. It's a different type of museum experience which was refreshing from the usual types of museums you go to when traveling. Interesting to learn about the history of fragrance in Cologne. Highly recommend checking it out but book tickets in advance online then you can select a specific tour time.
  • My family was in the English tour and the tour guide was funny, informative and amazing! It was nice to hear about the history of Farina eau cologne as well as see bottles from different years in the history. I recommend this tour! We got free small cologne sample after the tour.
  • A really nice way to spend an hour. You must book in advance. My teen son and I enjoyed the guided tour a lot. We got a free sample. Perfect gifts for people back home :-)
  • Our guide was very extraordinary. She's so very animated and passionate. It's like a musical tour with her humorous movement. The talks seems to be dancing and floating as she speaks. Extremely enjoyable moments with her.
