Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Step out of the city life by going to Rhine Valley and Rhine River. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Reichsburg Cochem and Cologne Cathedral. Explore Cologne's surroundings by going to Drachenfels (in Konigswinter), Marksburg Castle (in Braubach) and Aachen (Aachener Rathaus & Aachen Cathedral). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Cologne Chocolate Museum, admire the masterpieces at Wallraf-Richartz Museum, take in the views from Hohenzollern Bridge, and wander the streets of Konigsallee.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Cologne sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Iraq, the closest major airports are Düsseldorf International Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
