Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Get out of town with these interesting Cologne side-trips: Dusseldorf (Rheinuferpromenade, Old Town (Altstadt), & more) and Phantasialand (in Bruhl). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cologne Cathedral, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, and take in the views from Hohenzollern Bridge.
