Cologne is a vibrant metropolis city on the River Rhine, which is characterized by its versatility and balance between tradition and modernity.

Cologne’s cathedral is a symbol of the Rhine metropolis and also the most striking building in the old town. Every alleyway and street is jam-packed with shops, restaurants and pubs, where you can enjoy a delicious glass of Kölsch, Cologne’s home brewed beer. If you have chosen to travel by bus to Cologne especially to learn about the history of the city, then you can pay a visit to the remains of the Roman settlement. For the love birds, a stroll along the Hohenzollern Bridge is a must. The customized “love locks” have been preserved for years. Presumably this idea originated from Italy, where the lucchetti dell’amore symbolizes love with thousands of “love locks.” Each individual padlock is hung from the bridge with the name of each lover, and the day of meeting, proposal or marriage. In the heart of the city you will find the “Museum Ludwig,” one of the leading exhibition addresses of the Federal Republic. This post modern building can be seen from far away and lies directly on the Rhine. So why not sit back and relax on one of the Rhine’s banks, or take a boat down the Black Sea’s longest river before your bus departs from Cologne and takes you home? Another popular museum is in the Rheinau docks where it’s all about the delicious and tangy delight that comes from the cocoa bean. In this culinary museum you can of course taste the chocolate – whether you want to try one of the torte’s, a chocolate bar, a waffle or take a dive into the chocolate fountain – there is something to satisfy every chocolate lover’s taste buds! In order to work off the calories, you can take a trip along the River Rhine; by foot, bicycle or inline skates (where you could really explore the city!) There is so much to explore when you take a bus to Cologne.
