Accommodation in Cologne - Travel Guide
Cologne is Germany’s oldest, and fourth largest city and it is well worth taking an apartment in Cologne during your Germany visit. During the Second World War almost three quarters of the city was destroyed by allied bombing but luckily Cologne's landmark its cathedral survived. With its Gothic spires towering over the city, it is a must see on every tourists agenda. Built on the site of a 4th century Roman temple the cathedral was begun in 1248 and not completed till 1880. Cologne cathedral is a UNESCO world heritage site and is a testimony of European Christianity. A great idea for a day out is to take a cruise along the Rhine with a hop-on hop-off ferry. A ticket costs 28€ and is good for the day with the ferry stopping at 30 locations passing many castles in this wine growing region. Cologne is also famous for its beer known as "Kolsch", brewed in the city since the 15 century, The Cologne tourism office offers a two and a half hour tour that includes the brewery and a sample tasting of Kolsch beer.
