Cologne Motorhome hire has several rental depots in the Rhineland in Duesseldorf and also in Dortmund or further south which is very easy to get access to by train along the Rhine river valley.
Cologne known as Koln in German is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany, with a well-deserved reputation for hospitality.
Situated on the River Rhine, the city is home to more than 30 museums and hundreds of galleries. Orient yourself on the magnificent Cathedral in the center of the city, and tour this major cultural center of the Rhineland.
Every day there are several tours of the Cathedral to enjoy; there are many beautiful sights within the Cathedral. If you are feeling athletic, you can climb the 509 steps to the top of the tower, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the city laid out in front of you. On the way up, you will pass the huge church bell, the “Dicker Pitter”.
Once you have had a look around the Cathedral, head outside and next door to the historic center of the city. Have a hearty lunch at the Fruh am Dom, along with some beers from the Peter’s Brauhaus.
If you have a sweet tooth, indulge it at the chocolate museum, the Schokoladenmuseum. As well as several exhibits about the history and manufacture of chocolate, there is a 3 meter high chocolate fountain.
If you are visiting in February, you can enjoy the Kolner Karneval, the largest celebration in the year for the city. According to the official Cologne tourism website: “Its highlight is the street carnival taking place from Weiberfastnacht (Women’s Carnival Day), the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, traditionally the day on which women take control of the city to Karnevalsdienstag (Shrove Tuesday). On Rosenmontag (Shrove Monday) more than one and a half million people line Cologne’s streets to watch the parade with the mad triad – the prince, farmer, and virgin – every year.”
Getting to the city is easy, with Cologne’s international airport at Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN).
