In case you have only a slight interest in Eau de Cologne or history I can highly recommend this. In short it is history of the company and how Eau de Cologne was first made and how it differs from perfum

We had an issue with our original booking. The ticket company cancelled our booking but never informed us. We showed up for our tour only to be told it wasn’t going ahead. Thankfully the staff at the museum sorted the problem and we were able to join a tour the next day. However, if this had been our last day it would have been more disappointing.

Aside from this, we really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable about the history and kept things quite fun. The price (€5) is super cheap and well worth it. You even get a small bottle of the world’s first cologne which was a lovely souvenir. I actually would’ve liked to pay a little extra for a longer tour because it was so interesting and the guide was great.

I would highly recommend this tour. Very cheap, with great staff and tour guide.

History of Eau de Cologne in Cologne!
Aug 2019
I have to admit that it was the first time hearing about this name, from our guide on the little train touring the streets of the city. As I am a fragrance buff, it piqued my curiosity and we went to see the place next day. It is very interesting and in my opinion, their products are more pleasant than the traditional 4711 brand. However, the prices are significantly higher as well. A small bottle can make a very nice souvenir or gift.

I visited this museum with my daughter it is well worth a visit. I don't want to spoil the visit for you so I won't tell you much about it. Only to say you will be pleasantly surprised at what you will see and experience. Well worth the small entry fee.

So while my sons were at FC Koln I decided to visit this museum and for 5€ had a lovely talk and tour by an English speaking guide Tim. He was very knowledgeable and I found out a lot of interesting facts about perfume. Along with Tim's excellent tour the ladies in the shop were lovely. Friendly helpful and enthusiastic. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone and really enjoyed myself. Oh and I got a free perfume sample at the end too.

We booked an English tour, it was enjoyable to do something fun and light. The guide was kind, patient and answered all of the questions of the group. Like i said it's a pleasant experience.

So online with the museum you pay 5€ for the hour tour and get a sweet little minature at the end of it.
The tour is very inciteful, totally worth the visit and the guy that gives the tour is really nice.
The museum itself isn't big but does go down in floors and gets quite warm.
I recommend leaving your jacket with your bag in the lockers at the start.
Totally recommend this tour, great valie for money and easy to find.

For the price it is well worth it
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is only 5 Euro and 1 hour... not much to lose here and it was actually very informative. You learn the history behind the first cologne and the maker Farina. If you have an hour to spare I do not think you will be disappointed. You sign up in their website.
