I've been on more than a dozen Free Walking Tours and Simon has to be one of the best, if not the best, I've experienced. We were thrilled with the tour - great combination of insights, stories and history with lots of energy and humor.

If you are after the stock standard walking tour with a bunch of dates thrown at you and walking from one site to the next, then this is not your tour! Izzy was engaging, fun and a bit edgy. He added colour to the walk. There were the facts woven into his stories but his delivery is unique and enjoyable. He obviously loves his city of Cologne and it is evident when he speaks of its character. One of the best tours we have done. Thanks Izzy.

Best things to do and see in Cologne

Like much of Germany during WWII, Cologne’s metropolitan area was almost completely destroyed by the intense warfare that took place there. Today, it is a cultural and economic center for Germany’s Rhineland region. When you discover this city on the Rhine, you will be delighted by the mix of modern and old-world architecture that you can discover with the help of a local guide from GuruWalk in the morning, afternoon, or evening.


If you want to get to know all the most iconic spots in Cologne, try a guided free walking tour. This way, you can get oriented with the streets and places from the first day and find all the things you sometimes don’t get the chance to when you are alone in a new city. Choose from a selection of different routes online that feature the popular landmarks like Cologne Cathedral-the UNESCO World Heritage Site, St. Gereon’s Basilica, its Old Town, St. Maria Im Kapitol Church, or the Ludwig Museum and some of the lesser-known ones like the pubs in the Belgian Quarter, the Kolumba Museum, a chilling stop at the NS Documentation Center Museum, or a visit to the Fragrance Museum where you can learn about this city’s name and claim to fame. 


All of the tours on GuruWalk’s platform have been rated and reviewed by other people like you. You can browse through the opinions and find the best trip for you, and choose from several different languages. Other cities with guided tours that may be of interest to you are Hamburg, Berlin, Munich or Nuremberg.
