About the Guru

About the Tour

Having the #1 spot on Tripadvisor speaks for itself! Discover the secrets of the biggest city on the Rhine on this free tour of Cologne's unmissable sights.

The tour's meeting point is at the Domtreppen, the cathedral stairs located in front of Cologne Central Station. From there, we'll head to the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen fountain, so named after some curious gnomes connected to the city of Cologne... mysterious, huh?

Following our route, we'll see more of the city's most iconic monuments, like the Rathaus or City Hall, the Rheingarten, a park beside the River Rhine, and the Fischmarkt or Fish Market Square.

The next stop will be next to a curious monumental fountain known as Willi Ostermann Brunnen, before we stroll past two of Cologne's most outstanding museums, the Wallraf - Richartz and the Kolumba. Wandering onwards, we'll reach Dufthaus 4711. Did you know that this shop is one of Cologne's most famous perfumeries?

We'll then make a stop in front of the EL-DE Haus, former headquarters of the Gestapo. Our free tour will come to an end near the Kölnisches Stadtmuseum and the Römerbrunnen fountain, which also has an intriguing history that we'll discover on the day.

You will get to see this and much more during our Free Walking Tour in Cologne with The Walkings.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: The meeting point is at the Domtreppen, (next to the cathedral, right outside the Cologne Central Station. Look for the green and white umbrella.
