Cologne Vacations

Are you someone who enjoys a city with a rich history? Then take some time to visit the Cologne, Germany, which is an astounding 2,000 years old. Separated by the Rhine River, Cologne is filled to the brim with cultural antiquities. That doesn't mean it's lacking in fun, though. Every year, the town throws the Cologne Carnival, an absolutely boisterous street festival. Be sure to check it out while you're taking Cologne vacations.

Major Attractions

Are you ready to explore the nooks and crannies of this ancient city? Start your trip with a visit to the world-famous Cologne Cathedral. With its Gothic design, this towering structure is an architectural marvel built to astound. Afterward, head toward the river to check out Imhoff-Schokoladenmuseum, a museum that's completely dedicated to chocolate. The staff passes out free samples to all museum visitors, so you can even try some yourself. If you're in the mood to see what lies outside the city limits, then be sure to look into Cologne car rentals. You can camp, wakeboard, and even waterski at Bleibtreusee, a great lake that's nearby.

Festivals and Events

If you want the quintessential Cologne experience, then you should definitely visit in February. That's when the world renowned Cologne Carnival takes place. Between Fat Thursday and Ash Wednesday, the streets of Cologne come alive during this multi-day celebration that serves as a last hurrah before Lent. Make sure you bring a mask for Rose Monday, as everyone masquerades during this incredibly popular event. And the celebration doesn't stop until Wednesday—bars and pubs stay open for the duration of the carnival. Just make sure you book your hotel in Cologne. It's easy to do when you're on the hunt for the best Cologne vacation packages.
