FABULOUS PICTURESQUE WALK ALONG THE RHINE

The Frankenwerft in my opinion is a better walk than Rheinauhafen as it takes in more of the picturesque views of the city. However, I do advise you to do both of them.

This is the absolute best area of the city to take a walk, in my opinion. Between the Rhine and the historic Altstadt, the view is gorgeous and there are lots of small things to see, from sculptures over beautiful buildings to the bridges and the other side of the river.

This is very close to the part of town that has left historical feeling with the small narrow streets and narrow houses. Also, the shopping area, Philharmonic, Ludwig Museum and the *Cathedral* are so close. Take your boat trip on the Rhine river, sit in the restaurants and watch the crowd go by, or bring your own and hang out... More

cologne is a city where you must walk a lot in order to be able to see all the touristic spots... so, when you need to take a rest during your journey, go to Frankenwerft Park. On sunny days the place is very busy with people eating, running, taking photos or just enjoying the great view of Rhine river.

Frankenwerft is an excellent place to sit down and enjoy the day. It's in the Old Town along the River Rhine where many restaurants are located. Many local people come there as well. During nice days it becomes really crowdy.
