  • In the summer and in the evening it is double nice because then you can sit on the terrace at the water. There are several restaurants where you're sure to find a variety of different cuisines. It is very pleasant to walk through it. Only with a stroller, it is sometimes more difficult because of the paving out there.

  • As he does not know the old town, slept through not necessarily has Cologne. The edge of the district, bordering the old city may not be as spectacular buildings, but life and endearing, and far less crowded.
