- "lasting a good hour" - for a brief overview / only museum
Travel schedules are as numerous as there are travelers.
Maybe you will have a walking tour (included) as part of your travel itinerary, but it does not include any of the fabulous museums? You are curious about them, but the timing of the public tours offered does not match your travel plans?
Trade fair visitors, accompanying spouse, changing trains?
You would like to add another aspect to one of the existing tours? Just add an "One-Hour-Orientation" to it.
This tour lasts a "good hour" - 75 min.
You may choose between a short vicinity walk around the cathedral or any of the museums listed below:
- Roman Germanic Museum,
- Praetorium (Roman excarvation site below town hall),
- Farina Eau de Cologne Perfume House,
- NS Documentation Center,
- Ludwig Museum of Modern Art,
- Wallraf-Richartz Museum of Fine Arts.
