Two new tours offer visitors to Cologne new insights into life in the cathedral city. The “Through the Night” tour takes participants into Cologne’s old city centre between the cathedral and the Rhine. Late in the evening, they actively explore Cologne’s culture with its traditions and customs of yesterday and today. A Kölsch beer is included in the price of this two-hour tour, which is offered each Friday (www.koelntourismus.de).
The Cologne gourmet tour explores the areas around the Rudolfplatz square and the Belgisches Viertel, or Belgian Quarter. Participants can try samples of Cologne delicacies along the way in small specialist shops. They include hip deli snacks and desserts. The next dates for this tour are 12 May and 16 June 2018 (www.koelntourismus.de).
For groups both tours are also bookable in English.
