An alternative taste of Germany - experience Cologne’s thriving beer halls, incredible art scene, and stunning gothic architecture.

One of the real highlights is the remarkable Cologne Cathedral - the largest in the whole of Germany. You can climb more than 530 steps to the top of the south tower and from a viewing platform enjoy unrivalled views of the city. The cathedral itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous across the globe for being home to the shrine of the Three Wise Men.

Cologne is also home to a charming Old Town along the banks of the Rhine. Here you can explore narrow streets lined with older houses, breweries and some brilliant pubs and restaurants - along with some of the city's best museums.

This is a city which mingles its distinctly historical charm with the modern vibes of a Rhine metropolis. A perfect weekend break for culture vultures!
