'Classic Cologne' - Free Walking Tour with Freewalk Cologne
Hey there! My name is André and I'm part of the Freewalk Cologne family. After traveling for a while, I ended up in the city of Cologne and it fascinated me and can't imagine living anywhere else, especially after starting working with Freewalk Cologne. The company started some years ago with a bunch of people in love with the city and their main goal was to show around the city and make the visitors experience a fun time in Cologne. And nowadays, we're still here, ready to welcome you to Cologne and show you the hidden corners of the city. If you'd like to learn about Cologne in a fun way, don't hesitate and join us! We love our city and we wanna share this love with you!
On our tour you'll see:
Over our 2.5 hours, you'll get to know the inside information on what makes Cologne a special place in Germany. Why do Cologne people like the number 11 so much? And why is Cologne called “the most northern city of Italy”?
On our Free Walking Tour we'll show you some of the main sights, get to know the roots of the city and learn why people from Cologne do not fulfill the German stereotype. Our tour is not just the dry history of Cologne. We will try to give you the true Kölsche Jeföhl (the Cologne Feeling)!
