  • Located directly on the Rhine, the old town of Cologne boasts its unique atmosphere. Visitors expect a unique blend of restaurants, shops, breweries and squares that surrounded by old houses and small streets await you with historic flair here. The area around the former Benedictine Abbey of St. Martin, the old market and the Hay market was always a very lively district, where living, working, action, fun, culture, religion and tourism are mixed. The Romans had built a bathhouse and later a harbour here first. The stack houses (based on the staple right 1259 received Cologne) and the naming of the streets (butter market) today still remember the vivid life in the middle ages, which brought wealth and prestige of the city of Cologne.

  • The colony was once a pleasant city, now gives even fear to walk the historic streets. A lot of dirt, people sleeping on the streets, anyway, it wasn't pleasant return here this time.

  • It is a very well-kept city centre which combines shopping with restaurants, visits, etc. It is worth to spend some time.
