The “Old Town” of course isn’t. Mostly rebuilt since the 1950s. Germany didn’t do well in WWII after declaring war on the United States back when the US knew how to fight a war. So the is more of an epitome of a developer’s dream...More

Out of 12 European city Old Towns in 5 countries in 26 days, the Old Town of Koln was the least of all....I guess a few good wars and some bombs equal urban development. Seems like the ostentatious Dom reminds us of all we need...More

Because of the mid 20th century damage - there was very little old town left - so the houses are copies. Some of them have character but it doesn't give the impression of age that some German towns do.

Cologne is a friendly, walkable town. Most of the restaurants we went to were reasonably priced and there was a lot of choice in cuisines as well. We ate at a lot of the Kolsch breweries and we met a lot of locals this way... More
Cologne is a friendly, walkable town. Most of the restaurants we went to were reasonably priced and there was a lot of choice in cuisines as well. We ate at a lot of the Kolsch breweries and we met a lot of locals this way and had a great time. Fruh was our favorite! Did not do a lot of attractions but we walked past a few of them, just strolling along the river was fun in itself. The church of course is hard to miss and has some neat historical archaeological things around it, all of which are out in the open - (free) to peruse. I dont think you will be disappointed.
