Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Get some historical perspective at Burg Eltz and Rheinuferpromenade. Get a sense of the local culture at Reichsburg Cochem and Aachen Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Cologne side-trips: Dusseldorf (Konigsallee & Old Town (Altstadt)) and Ehrenbreitstein Fortress (in Koblenz). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cologne Cathedral, examine the collection at Cologne Chocolate Museum, take in the views from Hohenzollern Bridge, and make a trip to KölnTriangle.

For reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Cologne custom trip planner.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airports are Cologne Bonn Airport, Düsseldorf International Airport and Dortmund Airport. In November, daytime highs in Cologne are 12°C, while nighttime lows are 5°C.
