Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cologne: Burg Eltz (in Wierschem), Frankfurt (Liebfrauen - Ort der Stille, Main Tower, & more) and Koblenz (Deutsches Eck (German Corner) & Ehrenbreitstein Fortress). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Cologne Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum Ludwig, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Koelner Zoo.

For maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Cologne road trip app .
