Highlights in Cologne

This post is also available in: German

Köln Triangle

You won’t be able to miss this tower when you’re out exploring Cologne. It is the best way to get a look at the city from above! The entrance fee is 3 €, for that you get into a lift which takes you up to the platform within seconds. From the 28th level you will have a gorgeous view and this is one of the rare ways to take pictures of the whole Cologne Cathedral. Some engravings in the glass always show you what you’re looking at. Best photos can be taken when the sun goes down. Bring a jacket as it is always quite windy up here.

Skateplaza

Close to the longest parking garage in Europe you will find Skate Plaza, a great 2000m2 big Fun-Space for street skaters. Built to keep them off the city, this place seems to be built just for them. Bikers are a more rare sight. The view of the rhine and the Rheinauhafen is great – so even if you don’t skate it is worth a visit!

Schokoladenmuseum

The history of chocolate – from the beginning at the time of the Maya and Aztec to the finished product – shown in the Chocolatemuseum in Cologne. With at least 650.000 visitors a year it is one of the ten biggest museums in germany! And the museum has a very nice feature: a 3 meter chocolate fountain! Every visitor may put a waffle in and try it. If you like more, try to cue one more time. Don’t miss the store at the end if you are looking for some special products made of chocolate.
