Roman-Germanic Museum, Cologne
(4/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • Amazing find - this is a must see if you are in Koln. The floor mosaic alone is worth the price of admission but you will also find some wonderful examples of Roman culture and artifacts. 
  • An easily accessible location as it is close to the Cathedral and very interesting to learn a little bit more of the history of the city of Cologne. Worth checking on opening on holidays.
