Full description
Do you know the saying "Köln ist ein Gefühl" (Cologne is a feeling)? All the odd stories and anecdotes, which the Cologne people love to tell — in most cases with a twinkle in the eye — are part of the typical mentality and they reflect why the Cologne people love their city. Did you know that Tünnes and Schäl have lived with their friend Jupp Engels in the small house with the address Alter Markt 24 for many years? Or what is it about the Kallendresser and the Platzjabbeck? Why do the inhabitants speak about "schäl Sick", when they mean the Cologne quarters on the eastern bank of the river Rhine? And how far the distance is between the old town and the moon? During a stroll from the cathedral to the historic city center, your guide will let you partake in the Cologne mentality and will give you some insight into the soul of Cologne and of the Cologne people.

    Sehr kurzweilig und amüsant, aber doch auch sehr lehrreich - auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.
