Cologne city breaks take you to Germany's oldest and fourth largest city. The area was first settled two thousand years ago on the left bank of the Rhine by the Romans. It was an important town during the middle ages and the great spired cathedral which dominates the city, was was begun in 1248 and finally completed in 1880. The city has a great cultural centre with churches, museums, galleries and theatres. The old town, with its narrow streets and alleyways, is where you'll find a great number of the churches and the museums. It is also here that you'll find the town's oldest market, the Alter Markt, a very popular attraction. Many visitors come to the city in December for the Christmas markets alone. If this is your first visit to Cologne, a guided tour is recommended as they include the major attractions and give you an idea of their positions in relation to others. There are also boat tours along the Rhine. A Cologne card offers an inexpensive way to see the city. You can get one that is valid for one or two days which gives free travel on public transport as well as discounts on tourist attractions. If you purchase the VRS card, it covers not only the city centre but the surrounding area.
