As Cologne was one of the most heavily bombed cities in Germany during WWII, a lot of stuff has been rebuilt and hence it is not really a typical old city from medieval ages, etc. Hence, it is not as spectacular compared to other old European cities.

The Cathedral, the Rathaus and the Gross St. Martin church are absolutely stunning. Then there are pretty squares, secondary attractions and modern buildings too as the city was nearly destroyed during WWII. Lots of places to eat & drink.

Food, food, food and beer, beer, beer. A great place to spend an evening, or two, or three. So many places to eat and drink. I did two nights and don’t think I made a dent. Food and beer are very reasonable. Quiet in the afternoon but come 5 pm or so....it’s time to get the party started! And as quick as it starts, it ends just as abruptly. By 9:30 pm the streets were near empty. This was during the week, so I imagine that the weekends are outrageous. Just don’t miss this area!

A rebuilt city centre after the war. A nice stroll around but not spectacular. Good mix of shops restaurants and bars.
