    Another cool city gate that I accidentally stumbled upon as I was looking for the laundromat. Turns out there is more to this gate than just the fact that it is the old city gate.  more »

    As Cologne tourist with only little time this would certainly not the most important address for a sightseeing tour. But the medieval walls is quite interesting, if you have some more time.

    I like the square because there is a great atmosphere especially in summer. There are quite a few restaurants that have chairs and tables on the terrace. Unfortunately Ebertplatz is not very nice and it remains a focal point of the world of the drug in Cologne. It was the other side is the Eigelstein Street, nor lovely area which leads to the main Cologne station. The same Eigelstein, Tower, building has a party room that can be rented for company parties or weddings.

  • Love these old city gates, but it seems that there is much more to this place than meets the eye.
  • A very nice place and around many cafe and bar .
  • We started our free walking tour from here. Easy enough to find and has a decent bit of history attached. Nothing much to see unless you hear the stories.
  • This tower is beautiful and the area very lively. This is the jazz school of Cologne inside, the rooms are well equipped.
  • It's a replica. But it still worth taking a look. There are a lot of stores around there.

Where to stay in Cologne

The Ring is a semicircular area around the edge of the city's walls from Chlodwigplatz to Ebertplatz. Along the semicircle are hotel chains and boutique accommodations that offes ready access to the city center on foot or via a short metro ride. For access to nightlife, consider the Südstadt area known for its rock bars, cocktails, and theaters. The luxury accommodations in the elegant Friesenviertel area often attracts local celebrities. Search for lodging deals in the Nippes area, which is away from the busy center and known for its local character.
