Discover with us on foot the area in the vicinity of the Cathedral and Old Town. Many of Cologne-s most important attractions are concentrated within one square kilometre around the Cathedral, including the town hall and the old town with the Romanesque church of Groß St. Martin. In the old town-s narrow cobblestone lanes and lively squares such as Alter Markt, you will get a feeling for life in the Cathedral city past and present. The armoury was built by the Imperial Town of Cologne as weapons arsenal around 1600 in Dutch Renaissance style. Today, there is the "Kölnisches Stadtmuseum", which provides an insight into the spiritual, economic and every day life of the city of Cologne and its citizens from the Middle Ages up until today.
