Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Appreciate the collections at Chocolate Museum and Museum Ludwig. Step out of the city life by going to River Rhine and Drachenfels. Get out of town with these interesting Cologne side-trips: Aachen (Aachener Rathaus & Aachen Cathedral), Marksburg (in Braubach) and Reichsburg Cochem (in Cochem). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Cologne Cathedral, take a stroll through Konigsallee, explore the world behind art at Wallraf-Richartz Museum, and admire the verdant scenery at Rhine Valley.

To see other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cologne day trip planning tool.

If you are flying in from Iraq, the closest major aiports are Düsseldorf Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. May in Cologne sees daily highs of 22°C and lows of 9°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
