Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Appreciate the collections at Chocolate Museum and Wallraf-Richartz Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cologne: Deutsches Eck (German Corner) (in Koblenz), Eltz Castle (in Wierschem) and Reichsburg Cochem (in Cochem). Pack the 5th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Phantasialand. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Cologne Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, make a trip to KolnTriangle, and get engrossed in the history at Roman-German Museum (Romisch-Germanisches Museum).

To see more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Cologne online trip planner.

If you are flying in from The Netherlands, the closest major aiports are Düsseldorf Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in August, and nighttime lows around 15°C.
