Roman-Germanic Museum, Cologne

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
History Museum
Don't miss the highlight of Roman-Germanic Museum: an 1,800-year old mosaic of the god Dionysus. The artwork, crafted from millions of ceramic tiles, is--amazingly--completely intact. Throughout the museum's three floors, you'll see hundreds of artifacts from the Roman colonization of the Rhine Valley. Various dioramas offer details about daily life and religion in Roman Germania. The exhibits are laid out to resemble the inner courtyard of a Roman villa. As you walk around, you'll see that the museum was built around the discovery of the mosaic. Be sure to pay a visit to the restored stretch of ancient road just outside the building. Use our Cologne travel itinerary planner to add Roman-Germanic Museum and other attractions to your Cologne vacation plans.

  • A museum which I recommend you to go and see, it's all about Cologne (Cologne) Roman history up to the present day. Even generally about Germaniens Roman history. It has, among other things, a mosaic from Roman times in the Museum.
