Cologne over Christmas Weekend

by rajiv00

Hello

We've planned to be in Cologne over Christmas weekend (Dec 26-27). I have a few questions:

1) Will many things (restaurants, bars) be open on Saturday Dec 26th? We plan to visit the Dom and generally walk around.

2) We are booked at the Hilton (is it in a good location).

3) We managed to get reservations at the Blind restaurant (Unsichtbar). Any feedback on this place? Good, bad? Recommended?

Any quick day trips we can do on Sunday in or around Cologne?

Thanks for your responses.

It will be a very quiet weekend. You have to check out the opening times for each restaurant individually, but I suppose most of them will be open on Sunday, after Christmas. The cathedral will be open of course, but expect to be services held there, so there is no walking around during service time.I can recommend the chocolate museum, if you're interested in chocolate.

The Hilton is in a good location, close enough to the cathedral and the downtown area,without being too crowded.
I'm sorry I haven't been to the Unsichtbar.

If the tourist information across the street from the cathedral is open, go there. They are very friendly and helpful and can give you lots of tips about things to do in and around Cologne.

I haven't been to the Unsichtbar but many of my friends have and said it was an extraordinary experience.

You can do excellent daytrips by taking a regional train southward into the Rhine valley, or you can visit the cities of Aachen or Düsseldorf. Especially recommended in the Rhine valley is Koblenz. If you take the right bank train track (hauptbahnhof, Köln-Deutz, Airport), you can reach the small town of Linz which is also very nice (but will be quite quiet). Basic services will be open through the holidays.

Thank you Christine and RhineRoll...I appreciate the feedback.

RhineRoll - we'll consider one of those options for a day trip since our train back to Brussels is only at 7pm. Thanks again.

Happy holidays!

but then Aachen might be the best option by far -- it is right on the way to Brussels!

Hi RhineRoll

So we did end up in Koblenz on the Sunday of Christmas weekend and it was lovely (cold but fun). Thanks for the recommendation.

Happy New Year.

glad you liked it, hope you weren't deterred by some construction going on, Koblenz is preparing for hosting the Federal Garden exhibition in 2011!

No - it wasn't too bad! :) We managed to enter a church right when they were starting a Christmas choir performance - it was beautiful!

Thanks again.

Travel Tips for Cologne

So many cafes its hard to choose!

by Mariajoy

There are just too many lovely little places to sit and *people watch* - I could do it all day! I did actually manage to get of my backside occasionally and do other stuff - like SHOPPING (but mostly window shopping as it's quite touristy and therefore expensive!) :)) Being with lovely people.

Weather

by keeweechic

Germany has a moderate climate with the summers usually warm but pretty cold winters. The warmest months of the year are from May to September. The average temperature in July, for instance, varies from 16C to 20C (61F to 68F) according to the location. In January, the variation is from -1C to 6C (21F to 34F). There is no particular rainy season.

A Train for Tired Tourists

by christine.j

If you are too exhausted to walk from one Christmas market to the next, you can take a little "train". It's running between the markets and takes people down to the chocolate museum as well. The drivers do a terrific job! They manage to drive their "train" through the crowds without actually running someone over. It's hard enough to walk in these crowds, let alone drive there.
Prices are 5 Euro for a round trip.

Authentic Kölsch Brewery

by diocletianvs about Früh

We had a meeting with local VTers in one of the authentic Kölsch breweries. (Kölsch stands for everything - from local beer to local customs and language.)
The place is very popular and it was good that Sabsi reserved a table here weeks before.
We had great food and great time together although the waiters were quite rude and annoying which is all part of the genuine Kölsch experience.

I'm glad that I tried it, although I must admit this is not my kind of place. It was too loud, too smoky and with too many unordered beers just appearing in front of me. (Luckily it wasn't a proper beer but colored water with foam ;) I'm terrible with describing food - I had some meet and some fried potatoes. The meet was tasty with some delicious sauce and potatoes were OK.
