The tour starts at Rudolfplatz and takes you through one of the city's most popular neighborhoods: the Friesenviertel.
This Cologne "Veedel" has always been popular as a nightlife district and was long nicknamed "Chicago on the Rhine" - as it was characterized by the city's Milljöh and red light district from the 1950s to the 1970s. The dim bars and nightclubs, full of "easy girls," crooks and criminals have given way to countless trendy bars, boutiques and chic restaurants.
But even here, Roman and medieval Cologne still mix with the modern metropolis.
This tour takes you on a journey through time - first to the Cologne of the gangster kings Schäfers Nas and Dummse Tünn and then to the martyrs around St. Gereon and the Thebaic Legion, deep into the Roman past of the city on the Rhine.
At the stops there are entertaining tasks to solve and exciting questions to answer. Who knows, for example, why there is a cut-off head lying around behind the Gereonskirche? Find out and who it is!
The tour is a great way to get outside and discover new things with friends or alone.
It's like being shown Cologne by a good friend.
The tour can be started anytime and over and over again, on site or even from home, in the browser of a smartphone.
Have fun in Cologne!
