Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Get some historical perspective at Aachen Cathedral and Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Head to Old Town (Altstadt) and Konigsalleefor some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Deutsches Eck (German Corner) (in Koblenz), Dusseldorf (Rhine Tower, Rheinufer, & more) and Marksburg Castle (in Braubach). There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Cologne Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, explore the historical opulence of Burg Eltz, and stop by Oberhausen Centro.
