- a look into Cologne's 2 000 year old history


During this general overview you will get to know the world famous Cologne Cathedral (from the outside) and you will discover some Roman remains (e. g. a floor mosaic and a harbor street) next to the Cathedral and will proceed towards the historic town hall area.
Both Jews and Christians are mentioned in a Cologne context in Roman documents going back to the 4th century. The city is undergoing big efforts to put this on display by creating the famous "MiQua" zone - an archaeological site - right there by the town hall that we are going to pass along the way to the "Roman Germanic Museum". The latter showing parts of its collection in the "Belgian House" at Neumarkt square, since the main building by the Cathedral is currently undergoing restoration, too.

Please, contact me first before making the reservation.
