    Cologne Centurions

    by bonio Updated Jan 26, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2005 is their second season in NFL Europe. Saw the seasons first game against the Hamburg Sea Devils, a 24-23 win for the home team, could have been very different if Hamburg remembered to call time out before attempting a field goal 10 seconds from the end - live and learn.
    Disappointing small crowd of around 10,000, ticket prices are very reasonable and include travel on local public transport - buy in advance and use it all day!

    Sadly the Centurions and Nfl Europe are no more, 2007 was the last season.

    The home of Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

    The ground is situated in a little town called Leverkusen only 25 minutes away by train from Cologne.

    It was originally built in 1932, now fully rebuilt with a capacity of 22,500.

    Even though it has a small capacity is a great looking stadium from both inside and out.

    The old home of 1. FC Köln.

    They were quite literally knocking down this old stadium at the time of our visit. we should have been wearing hard hats at least as we sneaked in an open door.

    It was built in 1923 with a recent capacity of 42,000.

    Now rebuilt and renamed the RheinEnergie Stadion in time for the FIFA World Cup 2006.

    1. FC Köln

    Hennes

    The best football team in Cologne is the FC, playing in the 2nd Bundesliga this year (2004/2005). They have a wonderful new stadium - you have to acknowledge that even if you don't come to see the FC but the team the FC is playing. You're really close to the action, great atmosphere - but unfortunately the FC wins ...

    Equipment: Crucial equipment for the FC is Hennes, a goat! I heard that he (or better: his predecessors) has been poisened a couple of times by supporters of other teams - to bring the FC some bad luck.

    Apparently he enjoyed his walk during the break ... and he brought his team the luck they needed :-(

    Floating Gym

    by steventilly Written Sep 17, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the big Rhine Cruisers near the chocolate museum had its gym facing landside. When we were going up to the museum we saw a woman in there on a cycling machine, and she looked virtually dead. She was giving slow, laconic pedals, and had this really weary expression - not just on her face, but her whole body screamed "get me out of here".
    When we returned over 1 hour later, she was still there, looking exactly the same. We started to suspect it was some punishment, or that she was actually a galley slave and had to do this to provide the power for the ship or something.
    I know we shouldn't laugh, but oh how we did!

    Equipment: Cycling Machine

    This is a pretty neat looking arena and not just sport activities are done here. Concerts also take place and awards shows as well.

    by sandravdp Written Mar 31, 2004
    Outside and inside pool (behind glass).

    At the Health Spa "Thermae" you can get all sorts of skin treatments, but you can also choose to go and swimming here in the large pool.

    Equipment: The pool is at the end of Rhineparc.
