Roman-Germanic Museum, Cologne

(4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice museum to walk through. I find the Romans always very interesting and here they have a large collection with nice finds. You can read signs everywhere in different languages. I keep more of itself. Many beautiful things seen very nice to do with bad weather. In the museum is the quiet.

  • What is the basis of the tolerant philanthropy of the locals? ♫ While studying the respectable building "monuments" you should brush up on his school history and expand perhaps. But possible ♫♫ is an educationally prepared succeded site + OCL for open-minded fellow ♫ thank you ♫
