At a city-trip to the Domsatdt Cologne you will surely not get bored. The visit of the Cologne Dom is obviously part of the obligatory programme. The climb to the 97 metres high observation platform will surely let you run out of breathe. But therefore you will be rewarded with a stunning panorama view onto the city centre and the Rhine. Much too exhausting? Than risk a visit at the medieval vaulted cellar and cast a glance into the treasure chamber of the Cologne Dom. Also at the numerous Cologne museums there`s a lot to discover. Beside the chocolate-museum children love the Odysseum too. Here marvelling, trying and taking a part are on the agenda. Not just for families a ride with the Cologne cable car is popular. It will bring you from the Rhine-park over the Rhine directly to the Zoo in which more than 10.000 animals from roughly 850 species are living. From here it is just a stone`s throw away back to the youth hostel.
The City-Hostel Cologne-Riehl is located idyllic and quiete in the Rhine-meadows. After an eventful day in the big-city here you can switch off, enjoy the view onto the Dom and the Rhine and watch the passing ships. In just 10 minutes you will reach the city-centre by underground. Or you take a ride with the bicycle- at the youth hostel cycles are available for rental. After an eventful day you can relax in the modern rooms with separate shower and toilet; many of them are offering a unique view onto the Rhine.
