City tour 2: Cologne from A to Z

This walking tour gives you a feeling for Roman, medieval and contemporary Cologne. Discover the brilliant urban infrastructure of the Roman “Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium” with its network of streets, its fresh water provision and its waste water disposal systems. In the Middle Ages, the people of Cologne claimed to have as many churches as days in the year. Many of them were demolished in the phase of secularisation in the early 19 th century, but twelve unique churches in the Romanesque style remain, and furthermore several Gothic churches, above all the Cathedral. Of course you will find out why the people of Cologne wanted to build the world’s highest church in the Middle Age, but stopped the construction process after 300 years. Furthermore, we will tell you how the Cathedral was nevertheless completed centuries later. Fortunately, the Cathedral survived the bombing of Cologne during World War II fairly well. After the war, the centre of Cologne was reconstructed rather hurriedly, but the narrow streets and passages of the old town still give you an impression of life as it was centuries ago.

Information
This guided tour takes 1,5 hour. The gross price for a small group of maximum 7 persons in English is 118 € (including VAT), for a group up to 15 persons 145 € (including VAT), for a group up to 25 persons 165 € (including VAT).

City tour 3: Cologne from A to Z with In-Door Visit

Additionally to the walking tour Cologne from A to Z, visits to the interior of Cologne sights can be arranged: the Cathedral, to the Praetorium (palace of the governors of the Roman emperors) with a part of the Roman sewer system, to the Roman-Germanic Museum or the Cologne Municipal Museum.

This combined guided tour takes 2 hours to 2,5 hours.
The gross price for a small group of maximum 7 persons in English is 159 € (including VAT), for a group up to 15 persons 190 €, for a group up to 25 persons 210 € (including VAT).


“Cologne from A to Z” + Cologne Cathedral
A neverending story: the gothic Cathedral: A visit to the Cathedral gives an impression of what the people of Cologne tried to shoulder with such a gigantic project, why they after all overreached themselves and why the construction wore on for more than six centuries. But why did one want to build the world’s largest church in the first place? Who paid for this project and how was it realized? What happened to the Cathedral under the French occupation? Why was it eventually completed in the 19 th century? All these questions will be answered in a guided visit of the Cathedral.

Guided Cathedral visits are limited to a maximum of ten per hour. Permissions are given in the order of application. An additional Cathedral fee is payable in cash on the day of the tour. The Cathedral fee amounts to 30 € on weekdays for a group of maximum 25 persons + P.P. Euro 1,00 for obligatory Headset.


“Cologne from A to Z” + The Roman - Germanic Museum
- Pure Luxury!
A glance at the Dionysos mosaic in the Roman – Germanic Museum gives an impression of Roman luxury with underfloor heating and marble or mosaic floors, on which magnificent feasts were celebrated. The glass collection of the museum is unsurpassed, with unique objects such as the “Glass Shoes” and the colourful “Diatret Glass”. Another highlight is the extensive collection of Roman and Germanic jewellery.

The museum is closed on Mondays. Admission fee varying: min. 7,00 € per capita for the permanent exhibition.



“Cologne from A to Z” + Praetorium and Roman Sewer Channel
Since Cologne became capital of the Roman province of Lower Germania in the 1 st century, governors of the Roman empires were residing here. Their residence was the governors’ palace, the Praetorium. During four centuries, four palaces followed one another, the foundation walls of which still can be seen. From this spot, governors represented the power of the Roman Emperors – and enjoyed Roman luxury.

Afterwards, it is quite an experience to descend to a preserved piece of Roman sewer system and find out that the construction technique still is astonishingly up to date.


Closed on Mondays. Admission fee min. 4,00 € per capita.


“Cologne from A to Z” + Cologne Municipal Museum
Cologne Mentality and History Concisely!
Cologne Mentality and History are represented concisely in this museum. An impressive large model shows you exactly how Cologne looked like in the Middle Age. Additionally, there are detailed models of City Hall, Cathedral and some of the Romanesque Churches. The city’s expansion during the 19 th century is shown, and insights into the living conditions of the wealthy bourgeouisie as well as into the world of the working class in the time of industrialisation are given.

You will also come across some Cologne characteristics: the Cologne beer, served by a “Köbes” in a slim, cylindrical glass, accompanied by the Cologne “Fooderkaat” (menu). Finally you will meet the characters of the most popular Cologne puppet theatre “Hänneschen”, and the nosey tailor’s wife, who drove the friendly and hard-working “Heinzelmännchen” (house-elves) out of Cologne .

City tour 4: Underworld Walking Tour

Under today’s Cologne street level, the debris of 2000 years of urban culture is hidden. After World War II, before the reconstruction process set in, archaeologists revealed the remains of many impressive features. Some of them we will present to you during a walking tour in the Cologne underworld.

The centre of the Cologne underworld is the Praetorium, the palace of the Governors of the Roman emperors. During four centuries, four palaces followed one another, the foundation walls of which still can be seen. From this spot, governors represented the power of the Roman Emperors – and enjoyed Roman luxury.

It is quite an experience to descend to a preserved piece of Roman sewer system and find out that the construction technique still is astonishingly up to date.

Furthermore, the excavations under the Romanesque church of St.Martin-the-Great are worth visiting, and so are the finds in the underground car park next to the Cathedral: is this the place where in 1074 Archbishop Anno escaped from the city from his rebellious subjects? A mystery up to this day is the Ubian Monument, Germany’s second-oldest stone monument: what was it actually used for? Just as interesting is a visit to the Mikvah, one of the oldest Jewish ritual baths in Germany. Hidden in the shadows of the Cathedral you can discover a small gem: an early Christian Baptistry, one of the oldest in Germany. How were people baptised 1500 years ago, and why was the baptismal font outside the church? All these questions will be answered in a truly exciting excursion.

Information
A short tour will cover two underground sites in one and a half hour. The gross price for a small group of maximum 7 persons in English is 118 € (including VAT), for a group up to 15 persons 145 € (including VAT), for a group up to 25 persons 165 € (including VAT).
A more comprehensive tour will cover four sites in two and a half hours. The gross price for a small group of maximum 7 persons in English is 159 € (including VAT), for a group up to 15 persons 190 €, for a group up to 25 persons 210 € (including VAT).
