Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Get out of town with these interesting Cologne side-trips: St. Peter und Paul (in Ratingen), Aachen (Werksverkauf Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Sprungli, Markt, &more) and Dusseldorf (Burgplatz, Rheinturm, &more). Pack the 25th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Phantasialand. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Cologne Cathedral, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Koelner Zoo, get engrossed in the history at Roman-German Museum (Romisch-Germanisches Museum), and take in the views from Hohenzollern Bridge.

To see maps, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Cologne trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Düsseldorf Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. In December in Cologne, expect temperatures between 46°F during the day and 37°F at night.
