Coach tour, walking tour in the old town and visit to the Cathedral

Guided Bus Tours

Description

This tour presents the most interesting facets of Cologne's past and present. With your coach we pass testimonials of Roman and medieval Cologne. We will show and explain sights from all periods on this round trip. From the river bank in Cologne-Deutz you have a view of one of the most beautiful city panoramas in the world: Cologne's old town with the Rheingarten, the towers of Groß St. Martin, the town hall and of course the Cathedral. In addition to visiting the world-famous Cathedral you will receive insights into the Roman colony and the medieval town of churches, merchants and guilds. Further themes during this walking tour are the city's destruction during the Second World War, its reconstruction and modern urban development as well as the typical Cologne mentality. The world-famous Cologne Cathedral with its gigantic dimensions and rich furnishings has a breathtaking effect on its visitors even today. After the foundation stone was laid in 1248, it took more than 600 years until the Cathedral was finished in the 19th century. The many well-preserved stained-glass windows and the golden glow of the Shrine of the Three Kings determine the appearance of the interior first and foremost. Another attraction enriching the Cathedral since 2007 is the highly regarded and controversial window by Gerhard Richter.
