Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Head to Altstadt and Konigsalleefor plenty of shopping. Visit Cologne Cathedral and Aachen Cathedral for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cologne: Dusseldorf (Rheinturm & Rheinuferpromenade), Marksburg (in Braubach) and Koblenz (Deutsches Eck (German Corner) & Ehrenbreitstein Fortress). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Chocolate Museum, see where the action happens at Signal Iduna Park, step into the grandiose world of Genovevaburg - Eifel Museum, and German slate mine, and admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig.
