Frankfurt – Cologne – Limburg – Frankfurt
Ancient, charming, and cosmopolitan, Cologne has stood as one of Germany’s most enchanting and best kept secrets. Dating back to the ancient Roman Empire and thriving through the Middle Ages a major trading hub, the Cologne metropolis is a must for any visit to Germany. Easily accessible on a day trip from Frankfurt, it’d be a mistake to miss out on our tour of Cologne.
From its historic relics that date back to Roman times – such as the famous Dionysos mosaic and the Praetorium, to the dazzling modern art galleries and museums, Cologne offers a little of something for everyone. Discover its scenic medieval lanes and streets with a ride on a local double-decker bus, showing you the large diversity of the city, as well as a walking tour through the central pedestrian areas to introduce you to the city’s charming, lively and vibrant atmosphere.
And, we cannot leave Cologne without visiting the Cathedral of Cologne, one of the largest and most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in Europe. The foundation was laid in 1248, but the building was only completed in 1880. More than six million visitors flock to this magnificent architectural masterpiece every year.
On our way back we will make a brief stop in Limburg, which has a beautiful medieval section well worth a closer inspection.
