  • Being sports fans, my wife and I visited this museum whilst in Köln for the Christmas Markets at the start of December. It is a really interesting museum with some really interesting and old exhibits ...  more »
  • This was a small museum - great to see the history of German sports! Each section was covered but it would be better if the stories were more elaborate explaining more about each sport But still ok  more »
  • so alive, so practical. during the tour, you can touch a lot, try much, and test. Many videos, z.B goal of the month by many years. Many headphones points, where you get statements. Nice on the rooftop views of the Rhine, but also a small football field to the romp.

  • If you're a sports person you should visit this museum. It has 2 floors of sports memorabilia and two sports areas on the roof (very nice view from there).
  • Fantastic museum covering a long history of German sport. Seeing Michael Schumacher's 1995 Benetton F1 car was a great start to the tour.
  • Any sports fan will enjoy this place, especially for the rooftop kick about at the end!
  • Nice
  • Simply Brilliant ! A must see for sports buff.
