Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
You've now added Papa Joe's Jazz Bar to your itinerary. Discover out-of-the-way places like Historische Senfmühle and Spas & Wellness. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cologne: Schloss Stolzenfels (in Koblenz), Rheinfels Castle (in Sankt Goar) and Burg Thurant (in Alken). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Beilstein Castle/Burg Metternich, enjoy some diversion at Cochemer Sesselbahn, explore the historical opulence of Burg Stahleck, and take in the awesome beauty at Drachenfels.
