See the Romanesque church Groß St. Martin, stroll along the narrow lanes of the Old Town and experience the lively squares such as the Old Market in order to get a feeling of life in the city both then and now. The Roman-German Museum and the Praetorium are an excellent way to round off your stay in Cologne.

In Koblenz, also founded by the Romans on the banks of the river Rhine, a city guide awaits you for a tour. A cable car will take you across the river Rhine to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, from where you will enjoy a wonderful view of the Koblenz region and the famous “Deutsches Eck (mouth of the Moselle to the Rhine).
