I love altstadt with its narrow streets and interesting shops and restaurants. You can spend hours here rambling happily around, checking out the architecture and churches. At night it comes alive with its bars open till the early hours. Take a stroll to the Rhine and watch the boats go up and down. Lovely

Charming pedestrian area along the river Rhein. Low buildings and lively streets with restaurant terraces create cosy atmosphere for hanging around or shopping. Much more authentic than Kölner altstad.

Love visiting the area scouting for yummi food. Visit during Christmas month you'll be able to absorb the festive in the air by walking into the many Christmas Markets in the area.

A location worth going to. After nearly spending all your money shopping in the shops on the Königs Allee you can relax in one of the many bars, restaurants or cafes not far from the river Rhine. The Altstadt and the Rhine Arcades form a large area for having fun. You can have a few bears (Alt beer). Or enjoy... More

On Rosenmontag the funny procession (>> 5 km long) moves through the inner city. As the route has been changed in 2017, buy a newspaper on the very day (e.g. Express) or check internet for best viewing points
