Cologne (Köln) is one of Germany’s most picturesque cities. Sat on the Rhine and boasting a unique medieval charm, this is a city of awe-inspiring buildings, brilliant museums, chocolate, beer halls and some of the best Christmas markets in Europe. Chill out in a bar and sample some Kölsch, a speciality beer brewed only in Cologne. Cruise down the Rhine, one of the best ways to see the city, and visit the Cologne Chocolate Museum and overindulge in some tasty treats. Also don’t miss Cologne Cathedral (not that you could, it dominates the skyline). It truly is the greatest Gothic cathedral in Germany. And if you’re visiting one of our Cologne hostels at Christmas, be prepared to experience a frenzy of Christmas fun at a variety of fantastic Christmas markets.
