Day-trip! Köln, here we come!
What better of a way to see Germany, than to have a road trip via train!?!
Cologne is Germany’s 4th largest city after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Furthermore, it is the largest city both in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and within the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Area, one of the major European metropolitan areas with a population of more than 10 million inhabitants. Cologne is a major cultural center of the Rhineland and has a vibrant arts scene. Cologne is home to more than 30 museums, including the Chocolate Museum, and hundreds of galleries, it is considered one of Europe’s centers for gay and lesbian life, and shopping is at every shopaholic’s finger tips.
Although we will visit a couple places together, you will have the rest of the day to adventure out into the city and discover what you like. Places that we recommend seeing while visiting Cologne will be the city’s famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom), the Brauerei Früh(we’ll see as a group), and The University of Cologne (Universität zu Köln), which is one of Europe’s oldest and largest universities.
