Citytour in Cologne

Discover the vibrant metropolis at the Rhine

Cathedral and carnival - that's what people associate first with Cologne. But did you know that Cologne has had city rights for almost 2,000 years or that Cologne has an international significance in the chemical, automotive and media sectors?

Come and join us for a 90-minute ride through Cologne and learn more about the eventful history of the city, associations and personalities. During the tour we will pass many of the city's highlights, including the cathedral, the historic city wall, the banks of the Rhine including Rheinauhafen, the zoo and the Mediapark.

During the trip you habe the possibility to leave the bus at one of our 14 stops, explore the surrounding highlights on foot or visit one of Cologn's many museums and simply get on the next bus - HopOn-HopOff makes it possible.
