Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Head to Old Town (Altstadt) and Bazzar Caffefor plenty of shopping. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum Ludwig and National Socialism Documentation Center. Explore Cologne's surroundings by going to Reichsburg Cochem (in Cochem), Aachen (Mayersche Buchhandlung KG & Spas & Wellness), Oberkassel (in Dusseldorf), Golfclub Haus Bey (in Nettetal), German National Museum of Contemporary History (in Bonn) and Burg Eltz (in Wierschem). It doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Wallraf-Richartz Museum.
