After Berlin (see here and here), some friends and I will be stopping in Cologne. My Canadian friends and I will be visiting a friend who did an exchange at my high school for a semester so it’ll be an international high school reunion! Since we’re visiting a local there isn’t much for me to plan: I’d rather get a local’s perspective on their hometown since she’ll know best! I still can’t help but check out what there is to see and if there’s anything I absolutely won’t want to miss.
The plan is to stay in the city one day and take a road trip to visit some castles/sites another day. I’ve made a MyMaps here of a few castles in the area. My list of “Must-sees” for the city include:
- Cologne Cathedral. Again, I can never tire of cathedrals and it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- Biergarten Rathenauplatz. A beer garden!
- Lindt Chocolate Museum. Yes please!
- Lindenthaler Tierpark
- Rhine Promenade and Deutzer Bridge
Let me know if you have any suggestions (food, places to see, things to do, anything!). What’s your favourite thing to do in the city?
