What you'll do

Accompany me on a walk through 2000 year old Cologne. We start in front of the most famous building in Germany, the Cologne Cathedral. The history of the building, which lasted for centuries, is not only exciting but also entertaining. From there it goes to the Roman - Germanic Museum. We visit a well-preserved mosaic from Roman times. Afterwards you will learn something about the tradition of drinking beer and we will visit the historic town hall. From there it goes to the lively center of the old town, the old market. Find out why a little guy pulls out there and then visits the Cologne originals Tünnes and Schäl. Let's go to the Heumarkt, the medieval trading center of the city. From there we visit the birthplace of Eau de Cologne and Cologne water and finally we go to the fountain of the hardworking brownies and the traditional Brauhaus Früh am Dom, where the tour ends.
If you are interested in stories and want to be guided through the city by a local in an entertaining way, come to me. For 14 years I have been guiding people from all over the world through my hometown in a fun and entertaining way.

Cologne is my home. I was born here over six decades ago and love the city without wearing rose-colored glasses. I like to tell people stories and am always happy to make new friends.

Sehr zu empfehlen, interessant gestaltet, um in kurzer Zeit einen guten Überblick über die Stadt zu bekommen. Die Führung kann je nach Vorlieben auch individuell gestaltet werden.

Really enjoyed my experience. I was the only one on the tour so it was definitely good value. Showed me lots of places in the city that I wouldn’t have found by myself

Es war alles super, genau wie erwartet. Schöne kleine Gruppe, sehr netter Gästeführer mit fundiertem Wissen, was auch sehr gut vermittelt wurde. Ich kann die Stadtführung mit Manfred auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

Manfred erzählt die vielen Details so locker, dass man nur staunen kann. Dabei erklärt er Zusammenhänge und geschichtliche Erieignisse so einfach und witzig, dass die Zeit wie im Fluge vergeht. Ein absolutes muss, um Köln kennezulernen.

Tolle geführte Tour von einem absoluten Insider. Alle Fragen wurden super beantwortet und am Schluss gab es noch einen tollen Tipp.
