Private Tour to Cologne
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel in Amsterdam, and drive you through the beautiful Dutch countryside to the medieval German city of Cologne. Once in Cologne, your tour will start off with the indisputable centerpiece of the city: the Cologne Cathedral. Completed in its current incarnation in 1880, the Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a prime example of Gothic architecture. The site on which the Cathedral stands has been continuously occupied since Roman times, and has been the home of several Christian structures since the 4th century.
Next on the agenda: the German Sports and Olympia Museum. This museum is a sports fan’s dream: it boasts wall-to-wall memorabilia including signed boots, boats, and balls. Your museum visit will be followed by a stroll across the Hohenzollern Bridge which crosses the Rhine and is both a pedestrian and rail bridge. Although initially built in 1911, the bridge was blown up in 1945 by German soldiers to slow the advance of the Allies. Since 2008, passers-by have placed love padlocks on the fences separating the sidewalks from the rail tracks, making for a unique and touching spectacle (you are, of course, encouraged to add your own inscribed love padlock if you wish!)
Once across the bridge, you will pay a visit to the nearby panorama deck of the Cologne Triangle building which boasts by far the most impressive view to be had of the Cathedral and the bridges. For an equally astonishing view of the neighborhoods surrounding the Cathedral, you will next take a ride on the Cologne Cable Car for a breath-taking view of the city in its entirety, as well as a fun adventure!
Finally, you will get a chance to sample Cologne’s newest neighborhood – the Rheinauhafen, a waterfront urban regeneration project home to the famous “crane towers” and many other award-winning examples of modern architecture. At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your Amsterdam hotel.
