Wallraf ! Big modern building with interesting shop. Beautiful collection of paintings. You can have your picture taken in a cabin and then it will be put on the internet. You can take the print out with you. Pictures of very common people, but so beautiful.

    From Antiquity to Modernity in Cozy Cologne

    Founded by the Romans in 38 BC and idyllically located on the Rhine River, Cologne offers the perfect blend of historical and modern Germany. There’s no place more picturesque to drink a Kolsch beer and eat a schnitzel than on the banks of the River Rhine. Here you’ll find the Altstad, or Old Town, with the impressive Cologne Dom on the skyline.

    Visitors to Cologne in November can dance the days away at the Carnival Parade. In December, no trip to Cologne’s magical Christmas markets is complete without a steaming mug of Gluhwein.

    The charm extends to other seasons as well, thanks to the medieval wonders of the Cologne Cathedral and the Twelve Romanesque churches. Learn about the city’s history at the Roman-Germanic Museum or take a postmodern approach at Museum Ludwig. Whether historic or culinary, a trip to the Chocolate Museum can complete any tour.

    Booking.com offers 260 different accommodations, ranging from apartments to mid-budget hotels to guest houses. So whether you’re stepping out of a plane at the Cologne Bonn Airport or a shop on Hohe Strasse, you will be sure to have a cozy room for those cool European nights.

    Hotels that guests love in Cologne

    • The room was clean and tastefully decorated (we very much enjoyed the rotating table with the painting/mirror). The breakfast was excellent, with a variety of different food and very attentive serving staff. Very close to HBF and the city centre. Will definitely consider this hotel should I need to visit Cologne again.

    • We went for two nights over the New Year and enjoyed a beautiful, spacious double bedroom. The room was clean and we had a pleasant view of the Rhine. The Elemis shampoos are very good! Very friendly and helpful staff. We ordered breakfast in bed which was lovely. The sauna is good fun. Highly recommended this hotel if you want to spend a few nights visiting Cologne. It is close to the city centre (10 minute walk along Rhine).

    • Central location, close to all the sights and amenities in Cologne. Hotel easy to find, situated just off the main pedestrian shopping street less than 10 minutes walk to the main station, cathedral, River Rhine, the old town, shops, bars, cafes. U Bahn station etc. The Cologne exhibition centre is only a couple of stops on the U Bahn, the station being a few minutes walk away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Help yourself buffet breakfast was typical continental fayre.

    • Decent enough budget hotel. Close to station/old town so all the places to see in Cologne are easily accessible. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.

    • The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Cologne in a quiet suburb. A lovely courtyard greets you as you arrive, a homely feel to the hotel. The room had a balcony to sit and enjoy the peace after a hectic day in the city centre.
