Top Tips from Our Travel Experts
"Cologne is a beautiful city, the largest of the Rhineland, a key centre of culture with an impressive array of sights to enjoy. The best way to take in all the views is with a river cruise down the Rhine, as this runs straight through the centre of the city; of special note is the magnificent Cologne Cathedral, whose twin spires dominate the skyline at the centre of the picturesque old town. Cologne is impressive all year round, but if looking for that something extra special, we’d recommend a winter visit, when the Christmas markets set up shop and take your breath away!"
