Cologne

Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Thu): examine the collection at Cologne Chocolate Museum, admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, and then admire the striking features of Cologne Cathedral. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Hohenzollern Bridge, then take in panoramic vistas at Rhine Tower, then take a stroll through Konigsallee, and finally stop by Old Town (Altstadt).

To find traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Cologne itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airports are Düsseldorf International Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cologne can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to go by car back home.
