Up to 10 people
Hosted in German, English

What you'll do

DISCOVER THE SPECIAL: Get to know and love the cathedral city. On this special tour, discover not only the obvious, but also the rather hidden and therefore less known sights of the cathedral city.

We combine a cultural walk with our experience as an exciting journey of discovery through Cologne's old town with a visit to two breweries, where you can also try the legendary Kölsch beer if you want. Alternatively, you can of course also drink something non-alcoholic there. It's about being able to experience Cologne's brewery culture.

I will show you our beautiful city on the Rhine and its history from a completely new perspective. I will also take you on an exciting journey through time through long-gone epochs of the ancient Rhine metropolis of Cologne to today's Cologne. You will be able to learn a lot about the "true roots" of today's city life, discover and experience something unknown or undiscovered so far: Details e.g. in places or buildings that are known to fewer or very few people. You can experience an interesting, highly informative, authentic and funny tour at the highest level. Laughter and a good mood are included in this entertaining and varied tour.

Where you'll be

A magical fountain full of melody and heartache, a fountain of love and a completely unexpected medieval figure that has it all, virgins and witches, Cologne originals and a Holocaust memorial that is not directly recognizable - I will show you all of this and much more exclusively. Our tour begins and ends in a real Cologne brewery. If you are thirsty and hungry after the tour, you are already in the right place.

This is an awesome cathedral tour! Sascha provided a lot of interesting historical context and pointed out lots of overlooked details all over the church. I thought it really enriched the experience of visiting Cologne’s most famous attraction. This tour also goes into the area around the church and we had a look at some quirky/funny historical spots that were a great insight to the city and its great people. Sascha was very knowledgeable and easygoing and it made for a great experience. Thanks Sascha for a great tour! It has my highest recommendation

Super Experience. Sascha war sehr aufmerksam und hat versucht jedem in der Gruppe gerecht zu werden. Das hat auch super geklappt und wir haben uns auch sehr wohl gefühlt und auch als Kölner viel Neues über unsere geliebte Heimatstadt Köln erfahren.

My stay in Cologne wouldn’t have been the same without this amazing experience. I had visited the city center the previous day, then I joined this tour the next day and I learned a lot of interesting, important things and stories I didn’t notice at all before. We also focused on hidden details and spots. Sascha is a wonderful guide, very pleasant to listen to, with a deep historical, social and general knowledge of the city. I absolutely recommend this experience while in Cologne!
